Everyone has a friend with a comical uncle who seems to live on the edge of absurdity, and Hi Dive is the bar where you can probably find him. This place has a worn-in feel and it’s easy to imagine that a lot of the people drinking here probably have stools that are “theirs.” Have some clam chowder at the bar, or grab a table on the side patio overlooking the bay. Most likely, your friend’s Uncle Wayne will show up and start talking randomly about his new 3D-printed muffler scheme in the meantime.
