The next Fab Five Friday

Since I'm lounging on sandy beaches right now, I just can't be bothered to do a Fab Five Friday list this week.

Instead, I'm going to present the topic today and give you two weeks to list your suggestions.

We have already done a list of the best fake band names. Now, I want to do a list of the best fake bar names.

If you opened a bar, what would you name it? I already know JMGiordano would call his sports bar Fumbles. And bryanintimonium would be the proprietor of Ful. What about the rest of you? Ante up.

Would be? Youre off the guest list Sessa! Your children are off the list! Your children's children are off the list!

For one week.

Unpretentious Wine Bar

R.J. McGoodtimes
The K Hole (a Killian's bar)
Swill n' Spill
The K' Bro Corral

....Dehydrated Canine Pourhouse
The Emerald Carapace

I would open up a spot where Baja used to be and call it the Meet-Market with a "Single Ladies Night" on Wednesdays (women with drivers' licenses that reflect they are single would drink free), Free Speed-Dating every Thursday, and Random Duets Karaoke on Sundays, LOL! The demise of my beloved Baja has left a hole in the heart of Baltimore's nightlife ... why not reincarnate the space as what it always was a Meet-Market :-)

The Library
(If you can get next to a college campus. Then when the parents call you don't have to lie when you tell them you spend all night at the Library)

Sam - Gotta go with "Newt's" and the "Sandbar" ... not really fake names since there are bars named that in Ctown.

Drew... they used to be a place on Fort Avenue many years ago called Stumblin' Inn. It had happy hour starting at 6 a.m.

my friends and i once riffed for quite a while about naming a bar after an ordinary place. like The Post Office, or The Bank.
