What should replace Taps?
By this point, we've all heard the bad news: Taps is closed.
One question remains: What comes next? What brave soul dares to risk everything on a new business which could bring balance to the neighborhood -- or destroy it?
What about a brewpub, with the vats and stuff upstairs? Or maybe someone could resurrect the 5 for $5 wine nights (aka "purple teeth and blackout nights") The Vine used to have before it closed.
City That Breeds blogger Evan and I have our own incredibly
lame brilliant plans for the place ...
TV Hat Bar: Whatever happened to virtual reality? We were supposed to be taking fake vacations and stuff by now. Well, TV Hat Bar is the next best thing. When you walk into TV Hat Bar, you strap on a super chic TV Hat, which is linked into a live video feed inside the bar. You can watch yourself order a drink! And to make things really freaky, sometimes the cameras will be in unexpected places, like the bathroom. Mindfreak! It's very post-modern.
Dave & Busted: This sports bar and game zone would have all kinds of fun activities such as shuffleboard, corn hole and arcade games. But here's the twist: Everything malfunctions. Not bad enough to make you want to leave, but just enough to annoy the heck out of you. For example, you get all the way to the end of Pac-Man and the power goes out. And everything works fine with Super Mario Bros 3, except the screen is upside down. Whoa, nelly! The best part? It will be filmed for a reality TV show. Now that's forward-thinking.
