The Baghdad Bar and Grill: Remembering The Days When A Beer Run Was A Blast

There was a special time in Iraq after the invasion and before the insurgency really set in. A strange place of Hescos, blast walls, and drinking Belgian Coronas on the roof while watching fire fights and car bombs. It was Baghdad at its worst - and best.

Baghdad was “Green” or “Red” based on the ever expanding blast walls and the short run to Baghdad International Airport (aka BIAP) along Route Irish.  It was guaranteed to provide thrills, as insurgents took pot shots, blew themselves up or launched “shark teams” to zipper unsuspecting cars.  If you survived that, plus the crushing heat - you could use a drink.
