Pinkie Master's third best dive bar

Tell us something we don't know.

Southern Living magazine has released its list of "The South's Best Bars," and Savannah's own Pinkie Master's Lounge made the cut (somehow coming in behind a bar in Charleston, boo).

You haven't been able to smoke in the legend on Drayton Street since 2011, but Pinkie's still reeks, the booths are still caving in, and there's no better place to find a cheap PBR, darts game -- or juke box -- south of the Mason-Dixon. Even the Stars and Bars still fly above the booze. 

Here's what the magazine had to say about the top three bars on its list:

1. Earnestine & Hazel's (Memphis, Tenn.)

A bona fide institution with a storied past. (Psst: It used to be a brothel.) You're having: A Memphis-made Ghost River Amber Ale ($5). 

2. The Griffon (Charleston, S.C.)

Dollar-lined pub of the English persuasion. Charleston chefs make a beeline here after their kitchens close. You're having: A shot of whiskey and a beer back. 

3. Pinkie Master's Lounge (Savannah)

Longtime political haunt with a killer jukebox. Supposedly Jimmy Carter announced his bid for the presidency here. You're having: A PBR, unironically ($2). 912-238-0447
