Stranger at the Bar

I  love meeting a stranger at the bar and I feel even better when they are strange like me.

'Let's drink at a local bar tonight. Have a cold pint at 4 o'clock at a mostly empty bar. Listen to someone you think may have nothing in common with you. Order the steak rare, have a Negroni or two. Be open to a world where you may not understand or agree with the person next to you, but have a drink and conversation with them anyways. Sip slowly, tip your bartender, check in with friends. Check in on yourself and enjoy the ride.' ~ Anthony Bourdain
