Dive Bars: Mostly Good, Rarely Bad, But Sometimes Ugly

The Annex is a friendly non-neighborhood bar (unless you count a humongous airstrip and warehouses as neighbors) located near Randy's Diner and Boeing Field on Marginal Way, just to the south of the Seattle city limit. It serves extremely stiff drinks to one of the most genuinely diverse clienteles -- middle-aged African-Americans, bikers, union laborers -- in the entire county. It did not make the list of the 10 most intimidating dive bars in my debut novel, Seattle's Best Dive Bars: Drinking & Diving in the Emerald City. Not even close. And yet, over the weekend, someone was shot outside the Annex.
