This is mostly because no one could hear their feet sticking to the floor.
Karaoke must be a bitch.
Oof. Tunnel Bar is so expensive; $9 for one well gin. Might be cheaper if I could get beer down, but, hell, I’d also be fatter.
Daaaamn. In San Francisco, at a good bar that’s about what you’d pay for a nice cocktail.
Gives new meaning to ‘neww‘
If the carpet looks like it does on their website:
More spilled liquor might help it.
Spilling liquor on the chairs (and setting them afire) might help as well.
Funny, I used to go up Springfield way quite a bit… Never knew there was any reason to bother spending time in Northampton.
Wow, I think all the chairs a leather now or it’s too dark to see if they’re fugly. It’s really dark.
Also, I am gay and I draw gay covers.
“Wow, I think all the chairs a leather now or it’s too dark to see if they’re fugly. It’s really dark. ”
Probably for the best. More tunnely.
You know, that would have been the way to do their website photos. Instead of “FLASH! Look at our tacky (in both ways it seems) carpet” they should have gone with a dark, artsy look that said “ooooh! Tunnel of LOVE”.
“Also, I am gay and I draw gay covers.”
I don’t understand. What covers? Chair covers? I see no chair covers of any sexual orientation. Or happy carefree ones either. In your drawing? I’m confused, help me Willis! Does not compute! Error errooor!
Oh, the Tunnel Bar. So many weird and varied memories. My friend once ordered a Sloe Gin Fizz there. We all tried it, and agreed that it was the best tasting beverage we had ever had. When we mentioned this to the guy, he admitted to being out of sloe gin and had used Chambourd and Creme de Cassis instead. We now refer to this variant as the Magic Fizz, and although we have each ordered it several times since, it has never tasted as good as the first time.
Heroin doesn’t either.
Awesome, and claustrophobia-inducing!
Wait, I thought ALL bar floors were 40% spilt liquor?
And being an actual tunnel, cell phone reception sucks in there.
(Of course, that was before I discovered the upstairs room.)
Sometimes that can improve a night out, if it means people aren’t checking their flipping iPhones every 30-fucking-seconds.
Makes things tricky for those turning up late, though.
The description of the place reminds me of the Cavern in Liverpool, crossed with the carpet of the Raz. Ah, good student times.
Lets hope that is all you are walking through.
I was in the Navy for several years. I saw a lot of bars. (NO not from the floor view after falling off my stool (mostly) MOST good bars have that kind of carpet.
My experience, probably less than yours, is that “serious” bars (not part of a hotel or such) tended to go for hard floors. Usually with a bit of texture to avoid slips. I assume for cleaning purposes.
The ones with carpet either went dark with really tight patterns or kind of a “royal” look pattern, fleur de lis in gold and blue type of thing.
The problem I have with this one (and it might be the photo) is that repeating geometric in mustard and green kinda makes me want to puke, before I’ve had a drink. I admit it might not show stains, but it looks like it came from a Motel 6 conference center.
The cloth chairs, in green/blue with cigar boxes… AUUUUGH my EYES!
I will say it makes it unlikely that they’ll be stolen. And if a drunk does something nasty in one, once it dries, visually who cares?
The leather ones look ok.
I overlooked the sawdust on the floor places. And the open to the beach places. And the ones that were so dark I don’t have a clue what (who?) was on the floor.
Why is it so awesome actually?
What’s that sliver above the paper? Did you draw this in the bar? Good thing you didn’t drop it on the floor…
That’s clearly the clip of a clipboard.
So it is.
Hey Mr. Willis! Nice pics, shows the drawings well.
What model of (OLYMPUS) camera ya using? The image says uT6000,ST6000 but I’m not sure that’s a model.
Thanks for the info.
Ok, I know this is off topic, but I was unsure how to get this to Willis.
Dude. I just interviewed at a Toys R Us for seasonal hire. And guess what? The HR guy was named David and had glasses and messy brown hair. I know there’s no way it was you, but I thought it was a pretty neat coincidence. And I got the job! Maybe it was a sign? Thanks again for the awesome comic!
