I've never been there before. I might go just to see what all the hulabaloo is about. Right after I go to Maddox's book signing.

can't make it. Want to burn it down again? I'd owe you one.

Giggity, giggity.

Let's see... what would compel one to attend the grand opening of a bar that was never really that cool to begin with. Beyond the original reason for going there (i.e. two hot waitresses that actually gave us some attention (Lunchbox's large tips helped too)), there's really not much going on. I think we liked it so much because it was a sketchfest, and we were almost guaranteed that something weird/hilarious would happen. Examples: Weird- Simon & the King of Beers. Hilarious- Lunchbox & The Hobgoblin. Weird- Garble vs. TV cord. Hilarious- Mrs. Hawk & the pitcher.
As you can see, lots of weird/hilarious. Can anyone give an example of something "cool" that happened at G.P.?

I would fly up on moment's notice to see Garb's Vs. TV round #2!

Maybe they hired NEW hot waitresses. And besides...what makes you think it's not still a sketchfest? C'mon, man. It's Flint. All the regular weirdos were probably camped out at Sharky's this whole time just waiting for GP to re-open. Some hilarity is bound to ensue.

If it does suck I'll get right on that burning thing, Garb!

JTB- I was mainly addressing Cohort, since he'll only enjoy himself if it's more fun than the original Studio 54.
I, on the other hand, am perfectly content with GP being sketchpool full of skanks and white trash! That was why I enjoyed it- ripping on the Cornholios of the world.
Cohort is used to high-class "Fenton" bars. He probably won't enjoy a modest GB establishment that prides itself on things like "Chuck Sounds" and the memory of Costa the heroine addict.

I gotta say that there isn't anything quite like walking into the local skankpool, pulling up some prime realestate, and having the bartender already getting your brew. But Cohorts idea of a high-class "Fenton" bar is Modoggies.

HA! The last time I went to Modoggies Simon and I were trying to ditch the dunces. Good times, good times.

I've only been to Mo Doggie's one time. And I've been to some nasty-to-mediocre bars. Anyone ever been to Churchill's? When you walk in there you practically breathe in the Giardia. Gross. GBI I go to quite a bit, it's not that great, but the beer is cheap. I just want to go to this GP place because everyone has been talking about it for the last three million years.
