In the 'hood: Aristocrat lounge, formerly and for years, Poodle Dog

Every now and then I would slip into PD for beer, unfortunately a Bud, or 16 different varieties of "light" beers and enjoy the company of the "old farts", I, being one myself.

Now it has been somewhat refurbished, although it looks pretty much like the old place to me. They kept the same tattered beat up bar top and stools, I guess to lend it the same "Texas beer joint" atmosphere as before, and actually I am glad, but added a cheap, fakey chandelier right in the entrance.

They do have a better selection of beers and now have a full bar.

I'm glad the dude who bought it is keeping some what the same atmosphere. It's good to have a local place to slip into wearing your lawn grubbies. Good juke box too.

Hope to see you there.
