“Tavern” is a single word that means a thousand images, experiences, years, stories. I don’t think any other creation of man has been talked about so much or with such emotion. And why wouldn’t it, when every happy and sad moment in so many lives had culminated right there. The tavern heals the sorrow and fans the flames of joy.
The tavern is the place where intelligent people gathered and some of the most beautiful songs in our language were made, where important agreements were signed, ranging from marriage arrangements to business contracts worth millions, to tailoring borders and entering war.
It is where people flee from reality, students flee from schools, men flee from wives and vice-versa.
