I don’t know how much of the story of how I ended up here I can tell without Paula killing me so I’ll just start with we had eaten at Brother Jimmy’s BBQ and wanted a drink. We walked by the Gin Mill and noticed it looked packed so we kept walking.

Paula, I assume not wanting to walk in her heels anymore says “let's go back to that place” I said ok and so a night of madness began (this is where I cut out all the really crazy shit) The bar itself is pretty spacious and had a lot of memorabilia on the walls. The bathrooms could be bigger but hey it’s a dive type it isn’t supposed to be lush. The $3 drink specials on Sundays is the only reason Paula and I even go back. It’s just an OK bar. I personally wouldn't do this place that often. The people are cool as well. We’ve only ever been on Sundays so we see the rowdy Football fans lol.
