Mike’s is a dive bar with sports on the television and that comforting smell of a workingman’s armpit. It’s a place where one could sit down in a booth with a frosty glass of watery domestic and a plate smothered in a version of chili that merges the almighty Ohio with the behemoth Texas and feel like you’ve arrived at your favorite pub, even if you’ve never been there before.
