Ten Favorite Dive Bars in Greater Phoenix

Categories: Top Ten List

4. Champion's
While the proprietors of this landmark Gilbert establishment refer to their joint as a sports bar, it still is possessed by an undeniable dive aura. No matter how much team memorabilia is hoisted on the walls, the spirit of its former identity as the old Copper Coin still lingers. There are remnants and reminders throughout the place, including the antique register, an old t-shirt tacked above the shelves of liquor, and the hundreds of pennies located underneath a cracked coating of Lucite on top of the bar. You can still score condoms out a shoddy dispenser in the untidy men's room, waste away the day playing darts and drinking cheap beer during the lengthy happy hour (which runs from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m.), or chatter with the colorful bartenders.

3. Swizzle Inn
Take a dive into this nautical-themed North Phoenix watering hole, which is awash in the glow of hundreds of Christmas lights, taxidermied fish, aquatic regalia (including an quasi-outdoor atrium adorned with model ships), and fading paintings of tropical beaches. Swizzle Inn is also awash in cheap booze and drink specials (which are dubbed "the catch of the day"), as the bar staff tends to keep the pour strong and patrons happy. Stop by on the right night and feast on free eats cooked up by owners Bob and Beth Johnson, ranging from a cauldron of bean soup and batch of fresh cornbread to thick slices of tender beef brisket. It will surely hit the spot and help soak up excess alcohol before your trip home.

VIOLENT WORLD OF PSYCHIATRY-PSYCHOLOGY REVEALED(mindless mkultra crimes performed by police and psychiatrists/psychologists)

USE OF MKULTRA + HUNGER GAMES TODAY....Use of psychology/psychiatry for mass population or ethnic cleansing as well as crimes to which we witness daily on behalf of Zionism/communism/liberalism.

TRUTH ABOUT RUSSIAN COMMUNIST APPARATCHIK ALIKE GANGSTER AND TRAITOR DAVID DUKE OR 70 YEARS OLD US GOVERNMENT OBAMA(TERRORIST) NEWS

Related to WHITES ARE NOT WELCOME IN AMERICA ANY LONGER !!! http://www.youtube.com/user/Bo... or rather http://www.dailymotion.com/vid... OBAMA'S HEALTH CARE RECORDED LIVE IN 2009 !!! EXILING WHITES(US citizens) WITH EXTREME PREJUDICE AND IMPORTING NON WHITES IMMIGRATION REQUIREMENTS FREE !!! WHY TO ACCEPT LIABILITIES FOR CRIMES COMMITTED WHEN WE CAN SIMPLY ASSASSINATE OUR VICTIMS(YOU) THANKS TO HUMAN RIGHTS ORGANIZATIONS AND FREE PRESS/MEDIA(most severe CENSORSHIP OF GENOCIDE in entire history of human kind) !! NOT HUMAN RIGHTS COURTS, BUT ORGANIZERS OF GENOCIDE AGAINST WHITES AND SPONSORS OF BOGUS "MULTICULTURALISM" $$$ CLAIMS AT EXPENSE OF PERSECUTED WHITES(while minorities are awarded for and instructed by governments in bogus human rights claims, whites are simply killed if not perverted in multiculturalism garbage)  !!!

REMINDER...MY YOUTUBE ACCOUNT WAS HIJACKED(March 07th, 2012) BY US GOVERNMENT WHILE PRIMARY E-MAIL AS WELL AS BLOGS WERE ALL SHUT DOWN FOR THE SAKE OF CENSORSHIP REGARDING GENOCIDE AGAINST ME PERSONALLY THAT INVOLVED ABDUCTIONS / MK-ULTRA BRAINWASHING / FORCED BRAIN ELECTRODE - CHIP IMPLANTS / HUMAN EXPERIMENTATION / BLACKLISTING / FORCEFUL UNEMPLOYMENT AND ASSASSINATIONS !!! ALL AGAINST WHITE(under "NAZI" lie) CIVILIAN POPULATION TODAY IN 2011/2012 ACROSS THE EUROPE AND NORTHERN AMERICA !!!

+(plus)

IF THEY BRAINWASH YOU WITH LIES ON HOW ELECTING TERRORIST OBAMA WOULD HELP TEA PARTY(there is already over one hundred million of so called minorities in US alone while you are everything, but treated as humans), PLEASE ASK YOURSELF WHAT ARE YOUR CHANCES OF SURVIVAL ONCE OBAMA IS AGAIN SELF-ELECTED(see video 77) & SINCE NEW LAW IS TAKING GUNS FROM YOU ALREADY TODAY(stop the violent world of psychiatry or lies - NOW OR DIE) !!!

US government consist of TERRORIST Obama alike lawyers(liars), Ron Paul alike doctors, and Gingrich/Sanatorum alike family members of affected(brain disease) individuals who have helped pass CRIMINAL HUMAN EXPERIMENTATION bill against target whites. CRIME NO DIFFERENT FROM ROMNEY(Bush screwed US for Obama and now it's Romney's turn) WHOSE FATHER EXCELLED AFTER GM WAS DELIBERATELY BANKRUPT = AMERICA TODAY(soon to be success based on previous sabotage) !!

THIS IS NOT A SELF DESTRUCTIVE DEATH SPIRAL(you can't destroy something that NEVER EVER existed on the first place or other than mkultra brainwashing procedures created to destroy us from persuing the right freedom), BUT IS INSTEAD CONTINUATION OF WHAT WAS DESIGNED AS SELF DESTRUCTIVE SPIRAL(repeated 70 years old lie) = THEREFORE, THIS IS THE TRUTH OR REAL FUTURE BEYOND VIOLENT ZIONIST - COMMUNIST - LIBERAL ANARCY MKULTRA LIES CREATED BY SELF ELECTED GOVERNMENTS !!! THIS INFORMATION WAS PROVIDED BY INDIVIDUAL WHO DIDN'T RECEIVE A SINGLE DIME IN OVER SIX YEARS NOW(compare this $$$ info. with those whom you support and are returning you back with empty hope or self destructive patterns) !!! THE TRUTH IS ROAD TO SOMEWHERE WHILE LIES ARE 70 YEARS ROAD(America, you need to learn to discern what is where and who is what is) !!!

You have exposed my very darkest, well-kept secrets.  I shall never be safe in the light of day again.

Long live every memory of 6 east in every heart, mind and spirit..  That! was a dive bar.

One day, soon and very soon, New Times will review the Veteran's clubs in town.  Almost everyone has a relative who was in the military (great great grandfather or uncle or cousin) and that's your ticket for a cheap annual membership (usually under $30.00) free food, cheap drinks and great stories at the bar!  Or, better  yet, make good on all those "Thank you for your service" statements at the annual Veteran's day parade and take a Vet to a club for a drink. 

I guarantee you that these Vet's clubs will have the lowest prices and friendliest faces of any "establishment."

The other item of interest - Vet's clubs help out the community, families of veterans and homeless vets with the money they make from selling all that cheap hooch. 

Check out the following video that proves the VETS know how to PARTY!!!:

Oh, and dive bar characteristics?  Ever dive into a foxhole?
