This aging bachelor’s clubhouse is frequented by a small posse of old men who don’t want to be bothered while watching the game. Busts of Elvis and John Wayne share space with pennants for little-known Ohio sports teams, a jukebox full of Ted Nugent and Willie Nelson hits, and a severely limited booze selection. This joint may have crossed the line from dive to decrepitude, but who cares when a cocktail costs only $2.50?
