haha thats what I call a dive bar!

lol, dive bar. *da dun tzzz*

Looks like an example of portfolio diversification - to say the least.

Hard gloss red enamel on brick gotta love it, The epitome of low brow taste. all that is missig is the graffetti (ck sp).
In a residential setting, it would define being a bad neighbour or less an object example of negative curb appeal. I can just see the other houses shying away.
The above, compared to some people that I know, is being charitable.

Brick?!? That ain't brick, hon.

In a attempt to stay on point.

Then what is doing brick impersonations, hon?

As far as puns go, I don't know if I can do better than Dorothy Parker.

"You can lead a horticulture, but you can't make her think"

Not one of your usual building materials in suburban locales, particularly post-World War II buildings.
