it's one way to get rid of the band
Since the OG Hurricane went down those of us that used to hang out there have been scattered to the four winds. None of us are really digging the new Hurricane so we tend to do our thing at the Record Bar mainly because a former Hurricane bartender owns it.
Plus not withstanding the hipster stink, it’s a cool place to drink and some of the old Hurricane staff works there which makes the seeing always pleasant. But on Wednesdays and Fridays the hardier of us have been hanging out at this hole-in-the-wall called Kennedy’s over in Waldo.
I got introduced to Kennedy’s due to a very dear friend of mine taking over day bartender duties and since its close to my work and on the way home, why not drop in? Plus the world’s best band, “The Buddy Lush Phenomenon” plays there for happy hour every Wednesday knocking out the punk and rockabilly classics.
Kennedy’s is almost the perfect bar for me. It’s a friendly old school hole in the wall that pours a good drink and the bartender who I love something stupid is nice to look at. And the best thing is that unless folks know me, no one talks to me.
People go there for the serious business of drinking and if a conversation breaks out, fine as long as it doesn’t interfere with the drinking part. So it pains me to have to announce that Kennedy’s Bar & Grill burnt to the fuckin ground this morning and is no more.
The fire started before it opened which is fortunate since that meant that my pal hadn’t gotten to work yet to open up. But several fire fighters were injured while fighting the fire which by all accounts consumed the entire building which Kennedy’s was only a small part of.
Hopefully the owners who seemed to be cool people can and will rebuild and my pal can continue working without too much of a hitch. How come bad things never happen to the fucked up places?
