There are many reasons to go to a bar, and a stiff drink is only one of them. At Mortimer’s, regulars lean to a cold beer, a simple vodka and tonic – or a handful of M&Ms. Above all, they go to visit with each other in the East Memphis bar and restaurant that’s about as where-everybody-knows-your-name as it gets.
