Least Cool

Ever notice how the people who think they're the shit are the least cool. You'll find them at the 'New' hot-spot in town called Pubn'Club. It's actually kind of a clever idea. The problem is that it's antiquated and mediocre; welcome to Spokane, WA. The gist of it is that you open a bar, a simple and basic concept. Then you decide you're going to split the bar in half; one side pub, one side club. One side has pitchers of beer, pool and bright lights. The other side is club lighting, dance floor, and cocktails; add three or four black people -- and 'Funky Cold Medina' and you're fucking set. Club side: Pretend you're in a different city, mix up the race ratio a bit and add some dance music from this century and maybe you'd have something. Pub side: You've gotta have at least a halfn'half mix of micros and domestic on tap, dim the lights, put in a couple of pinball machines, a jukebox, some WOOD ( by which I mean trees), give up some popcorn or nuts and you might be on your way. Now look around and realize your next to the Satellite (which is starting to look good) and that your in the old Our Place. Go home.
