There was something transient to this bar, like a hotel room. People came and went and made it their temporary home for a small portion of their lives. There was nothing permanent here. The buzz of the door to the bathroom sounded like a prison before the night's synchronized lockup.

This is why tourist traps are usually so bad. They don't need to keep you coming back; they just need you to really go for it the one time.

As for us locals, I realized how important a first impression of a place can be. If I were having a wonderful experience, I would most likely return to spend more money. But if I had a bad or mediocre time, as I was having right then, I would probably never come back. The bar would be lodged into my memory card forever.

One thing's for sure. No matter where I am, I shall probably never eat another maraschino cherry.
