    To the guy that walked passed me saying "ish," my thoughts exactly. You let your inner beauty show, and I feel bad for you.

    I really like this place, good dj's & cheap food, but the ladies room sucks! Use the stall in the unisex (men's) restroom! :-)

    Yes, we're shocked too that Bob got lucky in a funeral home & Eddy on a pool table! Try to convince them to tell you the whole story over a Sparkling Pony, a fruity concoction made w/ Absolut Citron.
