These are Chain Beer Bars with a theme. Decent bar food and good service. Great beer choices and the lady severs are outstanding in those skirts and socks. I really dig the way they lay out their taps. I wish I had one of those walls in my basement. They also give glasses away and you can buy any left over for a great price. Try the mystery beer (you know the ones they can't sell) I was surprised to receive a good beer. I was not a member, but it was kind of weird when my partner swiped a card in a computer and it suggested beers for him. Keep drinking and maybe someday you will get your name on a saucer.

It was also hard going from Lovjoys to this style beer bar that is way to bright. I am glad I wear sunglasses all the time.

It is always easy to beat up on chains, but after visiting several I wish I had one in my town. Later.
