Gross Out: Drunk Flies at Coach & Willie's
By Amy Silverman
A late September inspection at Coach & Willie's -- a bar/restaurant not far from the ballpark in downtown Phoenix -- revealed a litany of concerns.
The report is pretty straightforward: The cooled chicken wings weren't cool enough; the bar sink was out of paper towels; the sweet onions on the dry storage were "severely blighted" and the caesar salad dressing had expired. A ceiling light in the kitchen was burned out; and there was "severe food and soil buildup underneath equipment in kitchen".
Oh, and flies in the kitchen. Yuck.
But get this: There were also FLIES IN SEVERAL LIQUOR BOTTLES.
I am dying to know how the flies got into that particular ointment! But not enough to belly up to the bar at Coach & Willie's.
