For the past several years, I've spent the majority of my Friday afternoon/nights at Mars. It was a ritual for me and, despite Mars closing almost two weeks ago, I can't keep away.
I had the day off work, so what better way to spend it than to sit on the sidewalk with Hank and watch the world go by on 2nd Avenue? Until now, I usually went inside to wile away the time. But, today, I sat outside as long as he did.
There was no shortage of company...
Despite the bar being closed, we had our own happy gathering out on the sidewalk.
I'm really going to miss this place.
