Some of the worst injuries coming out of rioting were people trying to protect their property.

Opening a bar makes them a good income. Better than restaurants. Booze has a huge mark up.

Yeah there's a lot of work needed in other areas besides a bar. But, I guess we are in a distinct minority when it comes to the need for lots of social interactions.  I haven't set foot in a bar in well over 3 decades, probably closer to 4, back when the drinking age was still 18.

But some people absolutely can't function as a lone wolf with minimal interactions with others, with no entertainment or "shore leave" type stuff.

I’m social and don’t like bars.  So many alcoholics.

I used to go to clubs where they had dancing and drinking. I still would if I knew a man who could dance. The difference is that I went to dance, mostly to live music, not to go to a "meet (aka "meat market" to drink. Places I went to were fratetnal clubs and the same people would show up.every week (ie a certain ice skater's mom, a really nice person nothing like the movie).

I have yet to have a "legal drink" in public place. I have had Mogen David at home in bed with a cough.

Those are more dance halls than bars. Dancing in a good sense.

Cue up an old episode of The SImpson's from before the era of Caller ID. Bart calls Moe's Bar.

Moe: "Moe's Bar, Moe speaking."

Bart: "I'm looking for Al. Al. Coholic."

Moe (calling out): "Is there an AlCoholic here?"

Bart: (laughing, hangs up)

Moe: "I'm gonna find that little punk"
