And I realize many "names" aren't correct (or aren't even names but locations). I tried. Hell, looking over this list I compiled one day when uber-bored at work (JC Penney's@ The Brickyard back in, like, 1997), there a few that I have no recollection of who, what, where, or when on the matter. And some of the bars no longer exist.

Ever been to any of these? Comments? Memories? Updated links for me? Whoo-weee, need a drinky-poo. Start a blog-meme: Do your own list, then link to me, like this.

Sometimes it's not where you drink, but what you drink, that matters most.

What a great idea. Brought back memories I didnt have. Is that cop bar on Foster, near my old apt, across from the precinct, on the list? Cant remember the name(something with numbers in it), but we played pool there. It had a wierd betting game.

Ah yes, Big Joe's. With the Turtle Races on Monday (or Tuesday?)
