If you’re not familiar with the glorious convenience of “the slashy” (a.k.a. liquor store/bar), this old-man haunt is a good introduction. Sure, it looks like your average corner store: Cases of beer, liquor and cheap wine surround retail shelves stocked with junk food in a fluorescent-lit room. But wander toward the dimly lit back of the store and you’ll find yourself in bar country wondering whether or not you should have a couple before heading home with a fresh six-pack.
