This week on Arts & Seizures, hosts Mike Edison and Judy McGuire are talking booze and bars with guests Sean Manning, author of “Come Here Often?: 53 Writers Raise a Glass to Their Favorite Bar” and Zak Davis of Shmaltz Brewing Company. Kicking off the show, the group tastes a few highlighted beers from the Shmaltz Brewing Company line while chatting with Sean about how a neighborhood bar can become as comfortable as a second home or a memory best avoided—a wild evening half remembered and better forgotten. But what makes a particular bar special, better than the one just down the street? The answers vary considerably as the group welcomes Executive Director of Heritage Radio Network, Erin Fairbanks, and phone guest author Mike McPadden to the show for their thoughts. After the break, the hosts taste some more beer while talking about their personal favorite bars throughout the city. Tune in for a frothy show! This program was brought to you by Roberta’s Pizza.
