Hey, do you have a passion for music, alcohol, and spending more money than you ever intended? Here is a guaranteed way to do that: stumble into the Recovery Room, buy a beer or 10, and proceed to drop your hard-earned monies into the jukebox. Many a Recovery Room night is filled with songs more varied than an episode of Tim and Eric. One moment, a cheeky person is quenching their undying thirst for Ke$ha’s “Tik-Tok,” then five minutes later, some music nerd decides the bar needs to hear Sonic Youth’s 20-minute noise opus “The Diamond Sea.” The best part is, there is nothing anyone can do about your musical selection except stand there and listen — unless the bartender skips your song with the jukebox’s remote control.
