These friends were doing it right.
It seems like there's always new bars and clubs popping. While we all enjoy something shiny and new, occasionally it's good to hit up some of the old favorites. With this in mind, we paid visits to the Rebel Lounge, Chopper John's, and Rips over the weekend and saw just how much diversity the neighborhood bars can bring. We saw a freestyle hip-hop battle at the Rebel Lounge, a punk rock show at Chopper John's, and a rockabilly band getting down at Rips. Photos by Jim Louvau.
