MONDAYS

Among charming neighborhood bars loved for their lack of refinement, the Twilite Lounge—aka “the Twi”—is a star. It attracts more a diverse clientele than you’d think: college kids, musicians, occasional preppie/yuppie types, LGBTQ people. And barflies, the kinds of people more comfortable perched in places with dark walls, dim lighting, cold beer and a blend of friends and strangers with whom to trade stories. One overhears me request a receipt for a PBR. “Business expense?” she asks. Yeah. Pretty good one, right? She has a better one. Once upon a time, her job required travel, and therefore offered a meals per diem. “But I don’t eat,” she says. When her employer’s payroll person asked why she never turned in receipts, she told them she only drank. The person advised my ephemeral friend to turn in non-itemized receipts. “I drank $48 of alcohol every day!” she proclaims. I take my beer toward an old-school CD juke that still feels new-ish to me, and see mostly mid-tolate-aughts dad rock—The White Stripes, Interpol, Neko Case—but also newer local stuff like local puppet-rock band Cool Banana. Sweet. Beyond the juke, the booths near the back fireplace are all empty. One has a tabletop Pac-Man machine with exotic variations on the game. Despite it having one unused credit, I retrace my steps, dodging barflies like ghosts and request more quarters. I believe I’ve found my perch.
