Dept. of Wish Fulfillment

LAST CALL
I went to a dueling piano bar last Thursday, almost a year after my first visit. Compared to Louie Louie’s ridiculously festive décor –– instruments, piñatas, bras, deer heads –– Pete’s Dueling Piano Bar’s was s...

Uptown Wild

LAST CALL
A couple of years ago, when The Wild Rooster changed owners, hired a new manager, fired a bunch of old staffers, and then went under in less than a year, I talked to one of the bartenders who’d gotten the ax. She was understa...

Yelpless

LAST CALL
I like Yelp for its maps and search function. It’s pretty helpful for finding dives that have somehow escaped search engine indexing, but because Yelp allows feedback only in the form of buttons that mark reviews as “funny,...


The Hello Goodbye Burger is just one of the specialties featured at The Rock

Everybody Wants Some

Classic rock and hearty fare come together in The Rock.
STEVE STEWARD
Should you make it through Alliance Town Center’s gauntlet of a parking lot to reach the northeastern corner, you’ll find a gigantic building with a logo beaming from the bottom of cartoon flames, the kind you see on the ho...

Sturdy, Funky

LAST CALL
It’s no secret that I like chain restaurants, and I kind of get excited when a new one springs up from the dust of some freeway-adjacent retail development. If I were a little kid in 2014, I’d probably grow up thinking that...

LAST CALL
More than any other time of the week, I find myself bar hopping on Sunday nights. It’s not that I don’t go out Fridays or Saturdays (or Mondays or Tuesdays or Thursdays, for that matter), but those evenings tend to be spent...

LAST CALL
Years ago, I was obsessed with a real-time PC strategy game called Starcraft, in which you guided the actions of militaristic space colonists attempting to gain control of the planets of some far-flung galaxy. The game’s poin...

Sidetracked with Sides

LAST CALL
Are there any bars around here housed in an old Taco Bell? The reason I ask is because a.) that would be funny and b.) there’s a bar east of Hwy. 360 on Division Street that looks like it might have once been a Wendy’s. I g...

Jamming at Gator’s

LAST CALL
I’m just going to throw this out there: All the neon trim lining the eaves of the buildings on Race Street is kind of deceptive. It makes it look like the neighborhood between Sylvania Avenue and Belknap Street is lined with ...
