In Drinking with Men, Schaap shares her unending quest for the perfect local haunt that takes her from a dive outside L.A. to a Dublin pub full of poets, and from small-town New England taverns to a character-filled bar in Tribeca. Drinking alongside artists and expats, ironworkers and soccer fanatics, she finds that these places offer a safe haven, a respite, and a place to feel most like herself. In rich, colorful prose, Schaap brings to life these seedy, warm, and wonderful rooms. Drinking with Men is a love letter to the bars, pubs, and taverns that have been Schaap’s refuge, and a celebration of the uniquely civilizing source of community that is bar culture at its best.

I read this gem on a short flight and was glad I did.
Although it’s a relatively short memoir, Rosie does a great job of conveying the feelings that make being part of a community a beautiful thing. Whether your community is based in a bar, a restaurant, a club, or something else, you will be able to relate to the feeling of truly belonging somewhere. This was a funny, heartfelt, and well written read.
