James Jarosinski and Yolie Aviles

james yolieJames Jarosinski and Yolie Aviles met in Maryland's oldest bar, Middleton's in Annapolis, in 2014. They eloped to Jamaica in 2016 and then set about on a journey to visit the oldest bar in all 50 states. By the end of 2019 they expect to have visited half of those awesome bars, plus the District of Columbia. Not only do they love visiting those historic watering holes, but they have a deep appreciation for the hundreds of interesting and distinctive corner bars and dives across America. James and Yolie, unique bar enthusiasts, are looking forward to sharing with you their experiences and tips as they crisscross the country on their noble quest.
