Confrontation 11 years, 3 months ago

I wonder why no one is commenting on the bar fight. Is it because they can't complain about The Last Call? Is the Eighth Street Tap Room a place where this is okay?

dthroat 11 years, 3 months ago

Maybe no comments Confrontation because that all it was - a bar fight. Didn't seem to be any assault rifles or any of the other automatic weapons involved which seem to be found with the patrons of Last Call.

Alcohol and testosterone will produce bar fights. It is when people go to their cars/pockets and produce the kinds of weapons being found connected with Last Call patrons that things get "serious" in a hurry.
