Thousand Bars Odyssey Ends

Dan Freeman, Man of the Year 2005

Dan Freeman is my hero. He decided he was going to visit 1000 bars in one year upon reaching retirement. In New York City, that's not very hard to do. Being a high tech sorta guy ( like us ) he set up a blog to memorialize the odyssey day by day.

He just topped off the effort, at the Pioneer Bar in the Bowery. Bar No. 999 was the Wheeltapper Pub, a nice Irish place near Grand Central that I am familiar with. One of his favorite bars is the Waterfront Ale House in Atlantic Avenue Brooklyn, a comfortable place that I also love.

Dan, congratulations on the achievement . You're a good man. If I run into you, the next one's on me.
