"The thing I like, it's one of those places, you step into it and it's like walking into 1930s Chicago. I have recommended that people go there. The (weekly) poetry slam is interesting. But I like going there sometimes in the afternoon, when there's no music, just to soak up the atmosphere of the place. You pretend you're a hit man."Terrence Antonio James, Chicago Tribune
