secondstar- Ha ha!!! You KNOW that you are in a dive bar in the Upper Midwest when you order a Milwaukee martini and they know exactly which nectar you speak of. For those without frost-bitten body parts, that would be a tap beer, preferably local, with a couple of jarred green olives. No toothpicks. That would mean that our fingers would need to thaw, and at that point, the beer would be warm.

Been in love with dive bars ever since the first time we ventured to a "townie" bar in my small college town. While I like to dress up and hit a fancier place on occasion, a much prefer any casual bar. If they only have one beer on tap and are shocked if someone orders a martini, that's just a cherry on top :)

Yes, love them! But peanuts are for classy places like Eastside Mario's, a true dive has nothing on the floor but broken glass and the tears of the lonely :P

Yes for me too, but I hate places that throw peanut shells on the ground. It's unsanitary.

I do, but unfortunately Missouri still allows smoking in restaurants and bars so we don't go out as much as we did in Iowa and Maryland. :(

I live in a small town in Wisconsin--pretty much ALL the bars we have are dive bars. Most of them are pretty fun and laid-back, so we kind of like them.

Absolutely. Cheap drinks, usually some sort of free snack, excellent juke boxes, and a game of photo hunt at the bar! What's not to love?
