Memories of Weird Nights at Soon to be Closed 21 Club

Apparently the 21 Club is closing. Ain’t that some shit? That is the last bar in the world I would’ve thought would hit the chopping block, mainly because it’s at the corner of “rob someone” and “stab someone”. I wrote about the 21 Club in my book Broke-Ass Stuart’s Guide

Catch the Fights at McKenzie’s Bar

It is extremely hard to justify the expense of a pay per view fight, 45 dollars for three hours of fights when you can’t be assured anything cool will happen is tough to swallow.  However sometimes you just need to see dudes with bad tattoos hit each other and rather then head down to
