« 10 Things I Would Outlaw | Main | Invaders of the Heart »

April 12, 2008



I hadn't been around there in years and I was just went back couple of weeks ago and I'm not exaggerating when I tell you it made me physically sick. I thought I was going to throw up or worse go on a murderous rampage.

The Hog Pit Has been a long favorite of Mine. Since Day One, The when Damien took over. Having run Hell Fire Next Door it became a Fond Hangout. Great Food, Lone Star Beer, Great Bar Bitches, & A Non Stop Juke Box.
Alas I thought it would out live the gentrification of the neighborhood. But I thought the same for Hell Fire, J's, The Lure, & The Village Idiot. Western Beef Became the Apple Store.
There goes the neighborhood to Greedy landlords, A Money & Business Giuliani & Blomberg administration.
It' may become high real estate value, Shining Glass & Steel. But The Neighborhood & it's charm will only last in our memories.

In leather & pride,
