A bar (also known as a saloon or a tavern or sometimes as a pub or club, referring to the actual establishment, as in pub bar or savage club etc.) is a retail business establishments that serves alcoholic beverages, such as beer, wine, liquor, spirit, and other beverages such as mineral water and soft drinks. Bars often also sell snack food, such as potato chips (also known as crisps) or peanuts, for consumption on their premises. Some types of bars, such as pubs, may also serve food from a restaurant menu. The term “bar” also refers to the counter top and area where drinks are served. The term “bar” derives from the metal or wooden bar (barrier) that is often located along the length of the “bar”.

Bars provide stools or chairs that are placed at tables or counters for their patrons. Bars that offer entertainment or live music are often referred to as “music bars”, “live venues”, or “nightclubs”. Types of bars range from inexpensive dive bars to elegant places of entertainment, often accompanying restaurants for dining.

Many bars operate a discount period, designated a “happy hour” or discount of the day to encourage off-peak-time patronage. Bars that fill to capacity sometimes implement a cover charge or a minimum drink-purchase requirement during their peak hours. Bars may have bouncers to ensure that patrons are of legal age, to eject drunk or belligerent patrons, and to collect cover charges. Such bars often feature entertainment, which may be a live band, vocalists, comedian, or disk jockey playing recorded music.

When Billie Holiday sang, history attests, her audiences tended to clam up. Even in the bustling nightclubs where she mostly performed, Holiday often insisted on total quiet before she would open her mouth. The quiet usually held, as one of the great singers of the last century turned jazz songs and standards into searching, and searing, portraits of life and love gone wrong that cast a shimmering spell.

When Audra McDonald takes to the stage and pours her heart into her voice in “Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill,” a similar sustained hush settles over the Circle in the Square, where the show opened on Broadway on Sunday night for a limited run. With her plush, classically trained soprano scaled down to jazz-soloist size, Ms. McDonald sings selections from Holiday’s repertoire with sensitive musicianship and rich seams of feeling that command rapt admiration.

Although Ms. McDonald, a five-time Tony winner and an accomplished recitalist, has her own natural authority onstage, in this show, she submerges her identity in Holiday’s as an act of loving tribute to an artist whose difficult career exacted a painful price. Holiday is as well known now for the grim travails of her short life — she died at the age of 44, her voice spent, her body destroyed by addiction to alcohol and heroin — as she is revered for the legacy of recordings she left behind.

But I’ve never seen anything quite like this A5 brisket. First, I was stunned by its size. Most packer briskets weight 12 to 16 pounds. This bad boy tipped the scales at 36 pounds! (It included some muscles that are removed from the brisket in American meat cutting.) Then there was the marbling. Imagine laying fine white lace over a red tablecloth. That’s how incredibly interspersed the meat was with buttery fat.
