Bars downtown - help me here people
I try to dive into the Richmond Arms on Fountainview / Richmond (lunchtimes much better)

You can't talk about ice houses without mentioning the West Alabama Ice House. It's on West Alabama at Hazard, so the plastic pinic tables and little shack-y thing look totally out of place. It's great!
We are, of course, now living in what George W. Bush has called the "era of personal responsibility": if a child chooses to have parents who can't afford health care, that child will have to accept the consequences.

Davenport's is not actually a "dive" in the gritty way -- more like a "dive in" smoky kinda bar. Excellent martinis of every flavor. It's hidden in plain sight on Richmond Ave. just before you come to Shepherd.

Ultimate Houston Dive

It has to be Lola's in Montrose. It doesn't have a sign so you just have to trust me on this one. It is on the corner of Fairview and Jackson St., 1 Block East of Montrose. Look for the purple fence, go in the door up on the loading dock. Drinks are served strong in plastic "glasses", 4 bottled beers from the ice chest behind the bar. Big back porch with a gazebo and old wire spools as tables or benches or something. Great jukebox and pool tables (careful of the sharks). P.S. Cash only.
