“One time I puked all over the bathroom door and no one bitched.” -DeeCee
One of my favorite blondes persuaded me to visit her at Connie Mac’s Pub. Thirsty for a PBR, I walked through the door with my head held high and my expectations low. It was a beautiful day and the patio was calling to us. I questioned my expectations. We were surrounded by scallywags and heathens nursing $2 drinks while waitresses swiftly delivered PBR. What kind of operation was this?
The bar was an ever changing amusement park with a different crowd and different employees every time I visited. The turnover kept me on my toes. You never know what was going to happen. To my left two girls worked on college papers while sipping PBR, pinky fingers extended. A timid looking crowd gathered around a table quietly giggling and bantering about sports while a gorgeous redhead threw bean bags at a PBR sign with a hole. The game was easy.
1. Order a beer.
2. Toss the beanbag.
3. Drink your beer.
4. You win, see rule 1!
Solid game, solid rules. Keep it simple Jersey.
I recalled what my friend DeeCee told me about Connie Mac’s awhile ago. “It’s a laid back dive bar. I’ve even run into a few porn-star look-a-likes there. The bouncers are cool as hell. One time I puked all over the bathroom door and no one bitched. They even let me finish my beer.” This place was making more sense by the second but where were the porn-stars? Just my luck.

It’s open until three A.M. The drunk and confused meander between the inside and the large patio. The place is incredibly lenient on it’s customers. A fight broke out and both were told to sit down and drink. They both happily complied. If you aren’t down for a Philly trip and are in the South Jersey area, this place will take care of your urges.
