best place to 'support the troops' by drinking - 2003
There was a time, when the bombs were still falling on Iraq, that American flags and motorbikes at the meatpacking district haunt the HOG PIT evoked a truly American promise. A cause to rally around with ideology and inebriation. Marxists, Marketists, and Motorcyclists. Americans one and all. Patriots with two-dollar Pabsts. The BBQ fires burn into the night, beers are iced in a trough, and you're always being watched by at least one mounted hog's head.
