Add to death and taxes another certainty: If you stay at Mike's Tavern long enough, you're going to pay a visit to one of its restrooms. There was a time when such a trip yielded a very specific wish: a sink in which you could somehow wash your entire person before again being around other humans. The recent renovation by new owners Ray Dunlea and James O'Brien has turned the corner stalls into something delightfully ordinary. They are clean and utilitarian, exactly the opposite of the haunting specter that awaited stumbling drunks after four decades of drunk stumblers. So grab a stool at the bar under the moose head and drink with impunity, for tonight you no longer pee in hell.
