The Flats.

Saturday, Larry and Katherine picked us up for happy hour at The Flats. A new place for us. I am sure it hasn’t been new for anyone else since the last big hurricane. It is located between Bernie’s Beach House, which is very nice, and Shortie’s, which isn’t.

Shortie’s is billed as the friendliest bar in town. Since I can’t get past the hundred of dirty, greasy hats hanging from the ceiling with ½ inch of dust dripping down, hard to tell. I am not OCD but do like a good squirt of Clorox on occasion. It is just creepy.

News about Bernie's, they have Texas Hold "Em Poker almost every day, and the Champions game has a $2,500 pot. There is no buy in, but lots of drinks get sold. If you play in the bars you put up with a lot of smoke.

Back to The Flats. It is a cement block building with no windows or charm. There are some glass blocks, painted black. The inside is all black, but clean. I guess eventually people do get tired of the sun, just not in Michigan. The waitress was super efficient, friendly and remembers names. It is a locals hang out and they are friendly too. Dogs, of course, are welcome. Don't think there is poker there.

Always exploring new bars for your enjoyment!
