🍻 The little bar that connects us

Axios' Emma Hurt shrieked when she pulled a T-shirt off the rack at Bozeman Vintage in Montana. A beaver in a cowboy hat waved at her, sandwiched between "Thirsty Beaver" and "Saloon 1225 Central Avenue Charlotte, N.C."

Why it matters: Thirsty Beaver represents a slice of a neighborhood that refused to bow down to development for a dollar. It's where Mick Fβ€”ing Jagger grabbed a drink and no one noticed until a picture surfaced after the fact.

The big picture: Love for the little dive bar extends well beyond Charlotte.

Thought bubble: "I just love how we're all connected to this weird little bar," Axios' Brianna Crane says.
