In a dumpster.
Any idea what’s changing?
Please say it’s the bathrooms…
Hopefully the smug fucking employees.
I understand there will be banquette seating, dumbo leather booths and pendant lighting. The bar is being replaced with one made of distressed concrete and recycled railroad ties from India. The backbar is getting pulled out and a new one that has a lot of glass and subdued colored back-lighting. This will be especially nice because it will shine through the new collection of top shelf house infused vodkas. Of course some concessions had to be made, the number of taps is being reduced to 4 (Sierra, Amstel Light, Blue Moon and Pear Cider).
I have heard rumors that there will be a raised dais where the pool table is now and a white piano will be placed there for the new nightly jazz fusion quartet.
No more Racer 5 on tap?? Boo-hoo!
How about drop the Blue Moon and Amstel Light for Racer 5 and maybe Liberty Ale?
I think you’re thinking of Bloodhound on Folsom St.
perfect! can i buy an over-priced loft nearby?
Zeitgeist has bathrooms?
why don’t people get that being a bartender isn’t all sparkles, rainbows, glitter, confetti, and um, kittens? I’d be pretty bummed if I worked at Zeitgeist and had to deal with douchebags ordering bloodies well past 6pm.
Look! A Kitten!
When 90% of you job requires you to poor and mix beverages for paying customers, and a big part of your income comes from tips, then wipe that smug look off your face and get me a cold brew please. Otherwise find another profession.
I don’t think service with a smile is something I look for in my dive bars. Cheap food, cheap enough beer, and a place to sit outside is good enough for me. I’d rather be snarled at than looked down upon. They do annoy me, but I can deal with it. There are plenty of bars you can go to in this city if you just want to get your ass kissed.
Do you honestly care what a bartender thinks of you? You poor guy.
Since you guys mention it, I prefer (and pay for) service with neither smiles nor frowns — plain, ordinary, professional service, in other words. I find that I get it, when I insist on it.
I don’t care about service with a smile. I just want something pretty to look at.
Pretty sure you can get all the fake smiles and coddling service you want at Hooters. As for this or any other bar, who gives a shit?
If you don’t like the staff of any place, DON’T FUCKING GO THERE!!!
And that is exactly why, despite their excellent beer list, you won’t ever find me in the Toronado. Fuck that.
First view, actually.
