Regretful decisions I have made at Welcome to the Johnsons: there are so many! Talking to a guy in a bandana, using the bathroom, ordering a seventh vodka-soda-orange juiceâ€¦ the list goes on. But I will love Welcome to the Johnsons forever for its chill atmosphere and super cheap drinks.
I hear a lot of complaints about the dirt level here, and I will not deny that their drink glasses sorta look like someone found them on the subway. Also, ladies, definitely hover over the toilet seat because it is gross. But I will withstand considerable amounts of filth for $2 PBRs and $5 wells. If you come here during the day time, when the natural light really brings out the stains on the plastic-covered couches, they will make you the most delicious, Guinness-and-pickle Bloody Mary you have ever had in your LIFE. It sounds weird, but it is amazing. I think all the bartenders know the recipe, but Shy (sp??) makes them the best. Plus, a healthy amount of dirt builds up your immune system. As long as you don’t lick the pool table or something you’ll be fiiiiine.
