A few weeks ago, my friend Sally and I went to Larry Bud's. Please click on the name to revisit that post. As I mentioned when I showed the establishment on May 11, we went there the last of March. I also explained they were changing it to a Dueling Pianos Bar.
The bottle of beer in the sign may have to be the drink of choice today, because I don't plan on staying any longer than to take a few photos.
I didn't remember this window before, but I know
the patio furniture had not been there before. I even noted it was a shame there was no outdoor seating, especially now that summer is upon us.
However, after another view of the neighborhood,
I wonder how well received the live music on the patio will be in this quiet community.
It only took me three tries to get a photo of the dueling pianos
which is where the gorgeous Nehi sign had been before.
As I entered the establishment, I was met with this poster. These must be the stars of the dueling pianos.
All the sports memorabilia have been replaced with art and a few musical instruments.
I had missed these stairs before, probably because the door was closed the first time I was here.
Although I took several photos of the lovely tin ceiling, this was the best one due to the garish lighting.
The final display case was not much better. Sad that all the sports memorabilia was gone and this was in its place.
The place was as empty as the day Sally and I came here.
The big difference was, the booth where Sally and I sat when we had lunch had now been dismantled and all that was left were the distinguishing boards showing where the booths had been in the past. Everything had been removed to make room for the stage filled with dueling pianos.
I looked for, but couldn't find a menu, so took another photo and exited without anyone noticing I had even been there.
This is the second time I've been to this establishment, and neither time made me feel welcome. I'm sure your drink experience was far more satisfying than mine this week. Please share it with us, so we can visit. Remember, it can be any drink experience, including art, photography, books, movies, or even a teacup, teapot, mug, or glass. Bleubeard reminds you that the photos can be taken at any time, not just Tuesday.
