Like the famous line from the Cheer's TV theme song, "Sometimes you wanna go where everybody knows your name."

That usually means a non-pretentious bar with modest surroundings where salt-of-the-earth locals are friendly, the beer is cold and cheap, the bartenders are a little rude but lovable, the jukebox is loaded with nothing but great tunes, and great pub grub is readily available.

These are all the elements that make up a great dive bar!

We all have that favorite down-home spot here in the Capital Region.
