Hair of the Dog Confirmed for Cafe Charbon Space

Much like some of the other watering holes in the Best Bar stable, these kitschy slogan-type names are gagworthy.

Hair of the Dog is a different name, but the experience here will likely be the same. So there’s still plenty of reason to worry…and walk on the other side of the street.

oh great…yes please LES, let’s invite more drunk ass college kids down so the cops on horseback can have a need to continue patrolling.
