    this spot has the rockingest jukebox in the 'hood and a smoker's porch to hammer another nail in the coffin. We know we'll meet a Suicide Girl here someday.

    Eat endless Goldfish or popcorn with your drinks.

    Look down at the floor, there are dogs all over the place. Make sure you don't accidentally kick or step on one of them.
