I don't recall if anyone's said this, but sometimes Spoutible reminds me of a bar.

Some are drinking adult beverages, others a diet coke or something else. Some are having a smoke out back.

Groups of 2 or more sit together and chat. Some sit quietly and observe.

Then a fight breaks out.

Not a punch throwing chairs flying bodies piling up all out brawl.

It's a words flying points making facts piling up kind of discussion.

Some jump right in to help and others stand back but provide support.

The fight may end abruptly or simmer and resurface here and there for a bit.

By gawd, you're right! That's why I love it so much here. And I've been in a "few" bars in my day.
Whoops, I'm up on the dartboard...

Is coffee an adult beverage? Asking for a friend.

I've said it a couple of times here, but not with that much detail - that it reminds me of some of the corner bars in places I've lived, where there were regulars, and casuals, and newbies. It's an apt comparison, in many ways!

I said Community Center because of all the activities, but there have been enough fights, and patrons looking for a fight lately, to make “bar” a good fit.
