His fantasy is a plaque that memorializes the barstool from which his masterworks were birthed. Hard drinking, devil may care author who produced gold despite his alcoholism and hard knock life.Same here, I think 2 beers at the most and he nurses them. Rest is whatever is free refills. I remember he once posted his receipt from a Packers sunday and it was like 20 bucks.
Pat sees going to Hooligans as not to drink but it’s part of his personality to be there. In his mind he’s a quirky sitcom character that WRITES at the Bar! Whoa! How unique! Not realizing he’s just a creepy regular that they can’t stand because he posts up at the bar (prime location) and barely spends 20 bucks while sitting there for hours. He has them plug in his laptop for a reason, he’s staying for a while.
