It's a pretty simple mistake. I bet everyone has done it at some point.
Haven't you confused Maryland and Massachusetts?
Well, I did.
After watching a marathon session of "Cheers" episodes I decided to make a pilgrimage to the REAL Cheers bar: The bar that was used for exterior shots and was the inspiration for the TV show.
I grabbed a handful of CDs (Kenny Rogers, Roy Rogers and Mister Rogers - THE ROGERS HOLY TRINITY), dove into my car and drove like a duke boy toward "THE" Cheers Bar.
Actually, the GPS system just said it was "A" Cheers bar.
I should have been more specific.
After a long drive I wound up here:
It was a nice friendly tavern just outside of Baltimore shamelessly stealing the name Cheers. Here is one of their ads:
Boy, that reminds me of the show! Not Cheers, but the Ed Sullivan Show. He once had a guy on that could spin a mug on a fork as they played circus music.
It also reminds me of Cub Scout camp when would toast mugs of beer over a fire.
Or maybe that was marshmallow...
No, I think it was Cub Scout camp. I don't even know what marshmallow camp is.
In conclusion, I liked the Cheers bar. It was fun. The interior did remind me of Cheers, and they had lots of pool tables.
Sadly they did not have a know-it-all mailman.
