Village Voice's Description
The sign out front says "Fishing Club," but the initiated know that night-crawlers won't be found here. Formerly a bait-and-tackle shop, the bar now hosts antique harpoons, glowing bobbers, and an ever growing collection of taxidermy and junkyard oddities mostly donated by locals. Birds hang upside down from the ceiling, a lifelike frog plays a tiny accordion on the bar, and a brown bear threatens to bite passersby with its teeth. An NRA card isn't necessary to go Extreme Hunting, a video game where players blow away big game on-screen.
