Awesome banners at Idle Hour
You gotta see the new "art exhibit" at Idle Hour (201 E. Fort Ave.).
The South Baltimore corner bar was between art shows, and co-owner Randal Etheridge wanted something to hang on the walls.
When he read a couple of outrageously negative reviews of Idle Hour on metromix.com, he knew just what to do ...
Etheridge had two big banners made with the reviews and hung them inside the bar.
I love it!
Here's one of the reviews, written by a commenter named TruthSerum from Federal Hill:
The place smells like urine and has raunchy decor. This week the "art" consists of distasteful nudes featuring cartoonish women of the night bent over.
Here's the other, by Dynamo from Otterbein:
The crowd that this place attracts are not friendly. The owner has an "I'm a bartender for life complex". I came in with my girlfriend and we had 2 drinks that were served in dirty glasses and when we asked for a clean es all we got was attitude . In fact that was enough to have the "regulars" giving us dirty looks especially this French chick that acted like she managed the place from her bar stool. Never going back to this crappy place again!
