To Wild Rooster Darkly

LAST CALL
You know that line in Social Distortion’s “Story of My Life” when Mike Ness sings about how the pool hall he loved as a kid is now a 7-Eleven? I’ve always wondered if that actually happened to him, whether there might b...

Hooligans: Quiet and Neat

LAST CALL
I’m sorry, but I feel like I have to say this every year. I can’t really handle St. Patrick’s Day. I guess if you own a bar, it’s, well, a leeetle post-spring-break boost in revenue, but, geez, the number of total amate...

Boating through Thundersleet

LAST CALL
If you’ve even glanced at a national news website or flipped on the TV news at some point over the past few days, you’ve probably heard that the weather has been much colder than usual in many parts of the country. In some ...

Mad Hatter: Short and Sweet

LAST CALL
Is February the time to open a new bar? Because there are at least three I’ve been to in the last few weeks that aren’t even a month old. I’m not entirely sold on all them. I’m loath to go to the West 7th corridor anywa...

Hello, New Pour House

LAST CALL
I remember this one Sunday evening a year or so ago — I’m pretty sure it was in October, but it could’ve been April — when the weather was absolutely perfect. I’d gone to The Gold Standard (R.I.P.) on West 7th Street ...

One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Station

LAST CALL
Lately, whenever I’ve gone out drinking at places where I don’t know any of the employees (and there are some, not many but some), I wonder if the person popping the top on my beer is a member of Life Behind Bars, a Faceboo...

So Long, Where House

LAST CALL
I remember one time at The Where House when I watched a dude drop in on a quarter pipe from the catwalk adjoining the walls of the back patio. We all watched him climb up there, line his skateboard up, and step into empty space...

1-800-BARTEND

LAST CALL
The next time you’re chatting up your regular bartender, you should ask if he or she went to school. Not college, mind you. I’m mean bartending school, as in the place that teaches you to make the kind of drinks nobody woul...
