SFGate profiles local bars in West Marin. Hmmm. "Fourteen miles away, the Old Western Saloon occupies the ground floor of a building once home to a brothel. Model Conestoga wagons parade across the cabinet behind the bar. The wooden bar itself is as lined and cracked as the faces of the old dairy farmers and oystermen one imagines once bellied up to it. On weekend nights, women in designer dresses and sweaty suited men with shirttails hanging out — more wedding party survivors — cha-cha in front of the stage as a blues band plays, the dancers almost-tripping on the stove in the middle of the room.

He makes a rich, balanced, Worcestershire-heavy Bloody Mary, a drink often ruined by too much horseradish or vodka. A young bartender with a shaved head is off to run errands, but before she leaves, he shows her video of a Roger Waters show he’s just attended. “Here’s when the mushrooms kicked in,” he cackles as the music presumably swells."
