You wake up Sunday morning, you don’t know where you are, and there’s a number in your phone that reads “Craig from Kitchen24.” Assume you went to Mother Lode. The classic dive bar underwent a recent exterior facelift, but luckily, is pretty much unchanged otherwise - good news for those seeking mixed drinks that are actually just full cups of well tequila. The interior isn’t great by any means, and there’s a decent chance someone will stick their hands down your pants here, but generally speaking, you’re in for a good time.
