Butts on the Bar Stool by Ree Miller

 

Spend some time at Stenny's, a bar in suburban Philadelphia that is mirrored in hundreds of neighborhoods all over the country. Get to know the regulars, semi-regulars, bartenders, servers, and the (inept) owners. Through the eyes of the characters, experience occult and game nights, a funeral lunch, a holiday party, an ill-fated double happy hour, and special menus—one of which results in a lawsuit.


The main protagonists are Joanna and Matt, and their friends Leigh and Jim. They each find respite from their busy lives by bellying up to the bar and being part of an informal, no-dues club. The four of them also share a bad habit; this turns out to have significant consequences on all of their lives, and on the future of Stenny’s. 
Butts on the Bar Stool is a dialogue-driven, light-hearted (and occasionally fanciful) novel—no deep messages, but some recognizable truths about how people interact with their surroundings and each other.
