A huge component of a successful career in journalism is research. Sometimes it's on something as mundane as a politician's tax return or, when you work for a place like Boise Weekly, sometimes it's doing something as refreshing as personally checking out every establishment in town that sells adult refreshments. A recon mission for the Bar Guide led a couple of BW staffers to the not-oft-visited Village Pub on Fairview. Wary of us at first, the bartender soon warmed up, and we found a friendly little joint with a fireplace that reminded us why we love our jobs.
