I grew up in that red splotch that runs from Buffalo through Cleveland down to Pittsburgh:
Yes, there really were bars everywhere (even one across from my high school when the drinking age was 18 – although it was a place for old men not teenage boys).
I also lived in New Orleans for a decade … another red splotch.

On the other hand, I lived for 2 years in Tuscaloosa, in the pale orange splotch in central Alabama, and for 12 years now in the white parts of Utah.
I also lived for a year in the orange splotch in northern Utah. But there were no bars in the conventional sense there: you had to join a club.
Strange to go from one extreme to the other … although I think I’m glad I had the opportunity to live in the red areas when I was young.
