The DBJ has a story about two local watering holes making a national list of the top 100 in the country. The distinction belongs to Billy Bob’s and Mercy Wine Bar (I think they prefer you call it “Mercy: A Wine Bar,” which we can all agree is nonsense). But so, really? Billy Bob’s I get. Nostalgia and all that. It deserves a place in the pantheon. But Mercy? My votes would be: the Old Monk (natch), Lee Harvey’s, and the Grapevine. But I prefer dives and don’t get up north to exercise my elbow that often. So what do I know?

Send your suggestions to the FNG, Eric Celeste.
