Bars: Moe’s

I don’t go to Moe’s anymore. It’s not that it’s changed at all – at least not that I know of. In part it’s just that I lost my patience for crowded bars a couple years ago. And Moe’s can get pretty crowded.
On the weekends they have DJs spinning some great tunes. Jon DJed there from time to time. I don’t remember how many times I’ve sat there just getting amped over the music. Even the jukebox is great. It’s got old school hip-hop, soul and funk with an eclectic mix of everything else swirled in.
Unfortunately, the vibe at Moe’s changes on the weekends too. It almost becomes more of a club than a bar and it has all the hazards that includes: Way too many over-dressed people crammed into a tight place. Maybe I’ve just gotten old, but that doesn’t appeal to me so much these days.
During the week it’s more of a neighborhood bar. Relaxed regulars hang out with the bartender or lounge on the couches in the back. Writing about it, I’m starting to miss it. I’ll have to swing by for a round soon. Maybe this weekend before it gets too crowded.
Moe’s is definitely a cool place to relax, but you have to hit it at the right time.
