At The Crack Fox, visitors can feel free to let their freak flag fly or simply play the role of a leisurely standby. All are welcome at this eclectic downtown dive -- just don't be surprised to see anything from burlesque and drag performances one night to bondage and gotchic industrial garb the next. EDM spins, karaoke, open mics, metal shows and more also make up the list of participatory alternative entertainment offered here, and there's a huge selection of beer and handcrafted cocktails to wash it all down with. Take, for instance, the "ginger snap" made with ginger vodka, cinnamon Schnapps and lemonade. Come in to pick your poison and meet the cast of friendly fun-loving regulars, and don't forget to bring an open mind.

The ambiance is warmer with local art and mood lighting, the liquor/beer inventory is always stocked and they offer new cocktails every week. The best part about the 'new' Crack Fox, are the events they are bringing in. Booking some of the best local and national live music acts from Jason and the Punknecks, Chemlab to Ginger Fish from Marilyn Manson. Weekly, no cover events like Service Industry Monday, Karaoke & Bingo Tuesday, The 90s on Wednesday and Thursdays vary between electro/new wave (Element) and funk and reggae (Big Sound Splash Down). And every Month look forward to Conspiracy, the premier goth/fetish event as well as Love Hz-Bass Beats & Booze Fest. Check out myspace.com/crackfoxbar for more information.
