I slouched through the door into the dingy gray light. It was a typical dirty bar and grill, but not really that dirty ’cause it was in Shawnee. I ordered my usual pitcher of whiskey and sat at the bar to watch the ball game. A fat hooker lolled three chairs down on my right, just waiting for me to catch her eye. A few shady looking thugs played poker at a smoky table to my left. The sounds of children playing and laughing came from down near the pool ta…wait. What!? Kids? Families? What the f*ck is this, Chuck E. Cheese? Reality sets in. Although it has the potential to be a good dive with decent food, Johnny’s is one step away from Applebees. If you like other people’s brats having the run of the place late into the night, you’ll love it!
