Louise's Downtown

oh...and.... banning an entire bar because of one bartender is ridiculous. every bar has a dick working at it. every restaurant has a dick working at it. it's called personal preference. you might have actually been a shitty tipper. or a bum looking for change. or just a bitch. who knows? you do, and that's pretty much it.

it's such arguments as these that cause others to go to a place EXPECTING it to suck, and thus act accordingly. as a service industry runt going on a decade, i've seen this at every place i've worked, and it is something nobody wants to deal with. over the past month, while at four different bars downtown, someone say the line "i've heard the bartenders here are assholes." -said TO the bartender! for fuck's sake! why wouldn't they be!?

as far as the smell goes....hey, you're right. it smells like puke there. it's an old building. Red Lion smells like farts and popcorn. Replay smells like seven, crusty bums stuffed inside a pack of Winston 100's. Fatso's smells like dumb. Tonic....probably smells like broken dreams. i wouldn't know. i'm over 21.

....just saying.

Louise's Downtown

ABOUT THE PLACE...corrections.

downstairs has pool tables and Foosball. Upstairs opens at 10pm Wednesday through Saturday. The bar's character is not automatically upstairs, as the character is defined mainly by the staff and genuine regulars, both which play superb roles at keeping dignity and class in an otherwise college-student beer-bar.

32oz. Schooners of beer and the best drinking patio in town, hands well as one of the few, if only bar in town that will swipe an underage asshole's FAKE ID rather than hand it back and let them try it somewhere else.....which is just fucking awesome.

.......but who cares. Louise's won't win anything. Only a handful of local hipsters and readers go there. And with a description that is half-assed and no longer current, it's amazing it's even on the list.

....speaking of outdated descriptions, i would gladly re-buff the entire bar selection for a reasonable payment. just saying....

Group Dine-amics: Local dining clubs foster friendship, feasting and economy

three years ago, two great friends of mine held such meetings at there rented upstairs room on tuesdays. at the time, the man running the show was my 22 year old boss, and his girlfriend (engaged this christmas) who was also an employee at the same restaurant. they held dinner for their friends, out of their own college incomes, every....fucking...tuesday. i attended as much as i could, and get goosebumbs thinking about it. it amazed me enough to hold one at my own house, out of my own pocket, and had another friend (currently an exec chef at a local restaurant, and ironically my current boss) helped cook it up. it cost me $230.00. five courses. the most outstanding home meal i've ever had. 23 years of age.

after doing it, spending it, cleaning it, and all that came with it...i'd do it every day if i had the money. you LEARN at dinner when others attend. you learn them, you learn yourself, you learn shit you didn't know, and you learn what you did know to an entire new degree. eating is a must in life, of course, but so is knowledge. you don't learn anything but taste and self content when eating alone, if you even get that lucky it seems.

i applaude these gentlemen (and unpictured ladies), most of whom i've seen eating at my employment, and applaude them again for taking it on the road. you're the people of whom i really work for. maybe not all of us cooks think about such groups, and in experience, maybe not most, but some of us know and completely accept the theory of dining with neighbors. so many natural cuisines in the history of mankind justify the bond such a gathering creates amongst nationality (shitty example: teatime, north england). In our country, i can't say we don't have this bond, because the obvious strength that eating has implied here. but how many people do you know dine like this? even if it is only weekly.

god damn. you're not just honoring your own traditions, you're honoring THE best possible way to eat a meal. hats off.

Anger Manginoment

"AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHhhhhhhhhhhhfuck it, i'll have corndogs."
For some people, in the angry midst of a paining heart attack, they visualize a bright, glowing light at the top of stunning, majestic stairs. For him, something more accessible.
....or maybe...
for the first time in his life, he was granted a blessed opportunity to unleash a booming "HEY! YOU! LOSE SOME WEIGHT, FATASS!" at someone else.

Caption Contest: ¬°Ay Chihuahua!

...and with a little luck, Michael Jackson was reborn as a healthy, white chihuahua; perhaps the most famous of the toy-breeds. Obviously, he remains bat-shit crazy.
