Ever since I disembarked from the train from Jackson, MS, people had been telling me "Bulldog!", "Bulldog!" to the point that I began to wonder if I were attending Yale. Well, I found it. It sat in the middle of the block, along Magazine, and the double doors opened directly onto the bar to the left and the kitchen to the right.

Thanks to the heat and humidity, I had my patch jacket at the carry and as a result, my extensive tattoos were on display. I knew that I was home as soon as I Adem the bartender and his great body art. I was contemplating my next move when Jeremy, another bartender, said, "Hey, man, nice specs!" Wait a minute, that's usually my line, dang it! Jeremy introduced me to a whole bunch of people over the course of my visit, which was very cool.

The long, elongated "U"-shaped laminated bar fronted an extensive back bar with a bank of fifty (50!) taps and colored chalkboard lists created by the very artistic Adem. To the extreme right of the back bar was a three-door cooler chock full of quality beers.

I was most intrigued by the Abita selection. It turns out that those Cajun bastiges were holding out on us Yankees. Abita Select - a one-off IPA. For Pete's sake, my blood pressure went into overdrive! Andygator - a barleywine! Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, over?!? Well, as the result of my visit, I know and so will everyone that reads this review. Ha ha, your secret is out, avec plaisir.

Along the right wall, headed aft, was a passageway leading aft to the lavatories, in which a recording of Adem's one-man band, Big Toe, was playing. As I returned to the bar, I was struck by the comely waitresses all clothed in L.B.D.s, which was a fantastic idea. It became fodder for Woody's Bar, a non-existent place that may eventually become the setting of a novel.

Jeremy told me that the owner had also opened a room for those patrons who may have become too intoxicated to drive. Heck, I would have made reservations for the weekend if I had known.

An outdoors seating area was outside and to the left of the end of the bar, headed aft.

Some last, random notes that did not fit anywhere else: the Robin Bell photo prints for sale to benefit the Louisiana SPCA; continuous video trivia on one of the monitors above the bar; and a slogan - "Old beer drinkers never die. They just go belly up." Ha!

Great draft list, college bar atmosphere.

Didn't serve the beer in proper glassware. They do take care of their draft lines. Beer tasted fresh.

I'd say the best bet is to stay away late-nights, and ask for a certain glass. It's worth a visit on Magazine St.
