Finding an empty chair on Southport on a Saturday night can be like trying to find free parking around Wrigley Field. When you arrive here at 10pm, you'll think you're out of luck again. But edge past the crowd hanging out at the dark wood bar, and you'll very possibly find empty tables, empty chairs and several empty beer glasses from the person who got drunk here before you.
