Best Bar In Which To Check If Date Washes Hands (2008)


Nobody—and I mean nobody!—wants to take a date out to some wine bar or techno-blasting yupster lounge. Good people go to tiny, charming dives. But nobody wants to hold hands with some foul gutterpunk who just tinkled onto one or more of their fingers and didn't lather up afterward, either. Enter INTERNATIONAL BAR. Then sit down, wait for the person across the table from you to break the seal, and see if they stop at the sink—sitting in the open, at the back of the bar—for a perfunctory rinse or even a thorough washing. Repeat.
