Never fumble around trying to open a bottle of wine ever again!
Ok, so this isn’t exactly belated, but I thought I’d better inform KCD readers what they’re in for if they choose to see the much-talked about superhero graphic novel adaptation Watchmen. All I can say is the title is certainly accurate – what you will be watching is men. Ambiguously gay (or not so ambiguous) and usually naked. The 300 meets Sin City may sound good on paper, but it makes for an inconsistent style, boring script and super gay homoerotic undertones. Not to mention the movie is three hours long. Dr. Manhattan (the glowing blue guy) is naked throughout the whole movie and can make himself the size of giant buildings. Believe me, I did not need to see that much giant blue cock. No one needs that. No one.

You will never meet the real Carl Spackler here, but several of the regular patrons will remind you of the classic character. Possibilities are good that you will get bitten by a gopher, or maybe it was the owners Shih Tzu??? We’ll never know for sure. No matter what experience you are looking for, this is a great little secret bar just East of the River market!
License to kill gophers by the government of the United Nations. Man, free to kill gophers at will. To kill, you must know your enemy, and in this case my enemy is a varmint. And a varmint will never quit – ever. They’re like the Viet Cong – Varmint Cong. So you have to fall back on superior intelligence and superior firepower. And that’s all she wrote.

I tried to watch all the Superbowl ads this year, but some how, one of my favorite beers got past me?!?!? Enjoy the Champagne of Beers ad.
I want to buy one just to see if I can cram a bottle into it!
From now on daily updates will be attempted. Bar reviews, music reviews, belated movie reviews, insane rants, and the occasional alcohol induced video will now be part of the lineup!
To you I say, “Good Day Sir!”

Good upper deck, but not enough to make this a great hang out. Drinks are way over priced. Food is tolerable, but you’ll never get it, and it won’t be hot, or with silverware, or anything after you order. In fact I think I’m still waiting on some hot wings. Once you get a manager and complain, service becomes pretty good.
Thanks for the “We are sorry shots of Jamison” round for the whole group at the table!!!
O’Dowd’s – Revenge of Zona Rosa NO LONGER
Step in here and you are NOT in Ireland. You are in Zona Rosa, a mega-vanilla shopping complex in the northland. This O’Dowd’s is good, it just doesn’t have the same character as the Plaza location. However, they carry a similar menu and the same Irish favorites on tap. Although I don’t know about these words all together on a menu: “Authentic Irish Wontons”.
