Ways real life isn’t anything like TV #1.

I once went to the real Cheers bar in Boston. Nobody knew my name nor was anyone glad that I was there.

  1. However I did go to the real Billy Goat Tavern in Chicago (SNL John Belushi fame). The cheeseburgers were delicious and they sold Pepsi, no Coke.

  2. When I was in Boston I went by Cheers and there was a small line down into the place so I decided it wasn’t worth waiting to see the inside!

  3. I had the same experience there, Les. I’m glad to know it wasn’t just me that no one knew.

    On the other hand, when I played WoW my gnome warlock was named Gnorme and whenever I logged into Vent my guildies would all shout “Gnorme!”… so I guess I sorta had the Cheers experience. 🙂

  4. You didn’t miss much, Mom. If you’ve seen the outside then you’ve seen everything there is to see from the TV show as they used the actual bar for the exterior shot.

    The inside looks nothing like the TV set. It was small, dark, and cramped. The ceiling was mere inches from my head. The TV set is an airplane hanger in comparison. It wasn’t really worth the effort it took to get in.
