Rosie Schaap : Drinking With Men

INFO
Friday, May 24 2013

Rosie Schaap has always loved bars. Starting with her misspent youth in the bar car of a regional railroad, where at age fifteen she told commuters’ fortunes in exchange for beer, and continuing today as she slings cocktails at a neighborhood joint in Brooklyn, Schaap has learned her way around both sides of a bar and come to realize how powerful the fellowship among bar patrons can be.

Drinking alongside artists and expats, ironworkers and soccer fanatics, Schaap finds that bars offer of a safe haven, a respite, a place to feel most like herself. In rich, colorful prose, she brings to life these sometimes seedy, but warm and wonderful rooms. Drinking With Men is a love letter to the bars, pubs and taverns that have been Schaap’s refuge, and a celebration of the uniquely civilizing source of community that is bar culture at its best.

A contributor to This American Life and npr.org, Rosie Schaap writes the monthly “Drink” column for The New York Times Magazine.
