Is Lloyd's Pub still in existence? What about Erin's? Pellican's kind of has a dive bar feel? West side of course. Not too familiar w/dive bars on the East side.

We bought the tumbleweed and expanded the bar into its space after knocking the wall out. Tell me that big orange bar is not ugly.. it used to be real nice, but the last time I went in there I was really disappointed. Maybe because I built most of the stuff in there.. and have memories of what it was. Heck we put the garden bar on the back, and was one of the first to have such a thing in the North East.

Ichi Ban was there a few months ago, but I think it is closed now. Niagra, dont know never been there. Rock-A-Billies is not bad.. used to be the Lariat.

The VIP was Cool Hand Lukes on Fairbanks and Rushing was a nice bar.. But I heard its gotten kinda rough now... lots of drug trade I hear.

The Bar on Dyer was the Lobby, I hear is under new ownership and very nice now.

I used to visit all of these places when we had the bar, and the dart team.
