No offense to the many great acts, bands, and DJs whose names are listed on the Rips Ales and Cocktails marquee, but that's not what you notice driving by. Nope, it's that angular sign that grabs your attention, all jagged arrows and bright red contrasted against pale blue. Maybe there's a little sun bleaching at work, but no matter: There's a Space Age elegance to the Rips sign, conjuring up surf-rock guitars, standup bass, and thumping drums. It's arresting, and that big arrow practically invites you in. Turns out, the whole place is just as sharp as the sign.
