      On the surface this seems like an OK dive bar. One interesting feature of this place is that you have to ring a bell and be "buzzed-in" by the bartender who views you through a little window. Considering how nutty people in this town can be, having a little extra security does make you feel a little better. That was where the warm fuzzy feelings stop though. This place seems to draw an older crowd, which is totally fine, but wasn't what I was really looking for. A man from the other side of the bar came over to talk which was very nice, but he wanted me to go sit with them and I really just wanted to sit and drink and I told him I'd probably make the rounds later. I sort of went through something earlier that day and really wanted to get my mind off of it, so I guess I was a little on edge. He kept coming back though wanted to buy me a drink and when I said No, wanted to know why. Needless to say I was getting quite uncomfortable and as soon as I felt I was ready to drive off I darted out of there. On top of that experience the music sucked and there really wasn't a very big crowd (although I was a little early.) That's not to say this place isn't for everyone, it just wasn't for me.

      I am going to be very fair....
      This place is perfect if you are 20lbs over weight and you wear flannel and you know the theme song to LSU football. The Manager on duty is very professional.. that is all I have....
