Enjoying affordable cocktail with Goat on Autumn's eve

A Budweiser-on-tap/utility grade bar opened up on the same site as this place, which they gutted and rebuilt. The Goat and your humble hostess had a drink there last night. 



Your humble hostess took the last available seat. The Goat stood.

Bartender: What can I getcha?

Your humble hostess: Canadian Club and soda.

Goat: Canadian Club and water.

Bartender: Short? (holds up glass for display) or tall?

Goat: Short.

Johnny Cash's "Ring of Fire" blares from unseen speakers as Bartender pours, then delivers drinks.

Bartender: That'll be $7.25.

The Goat and your humble hostess asked no questions, just blissfully enjoyed their respective three dollar and 62.5 cent cocktails.

Ramble on in. Have a seat at the bar and enjoy date night. It's a beautiful thing.

Looks very low key. Mapped it from one of the pics in the previous thread, hmm, which building doesn't fit with the others... How many people does this place seat, 20 tops? Street View

Another thing. When you can get out of the house, be alone with the one you love, spend maybe 10 or 15 bucks and have Johnny Cash entertain you; how does it get any better? As gasoline heads toward 5bucks a gallon, getting to that dive may be the most expensive part of the date. We need to drill more here at home and stop the rediculous government subsidies for green shit.

Thanks for the quick review. I haven't been in there in a long time. Glad to see its fixed up.

Hia gang.

Contrary, that is the old Ramble Inn. Thanks for the link.

I've updated the post with a pic of the "new" Ramble Inn.

cool... I'm guessing that's the 'post-drinks' camera angle ;0

A salut! So this is what they mean by getting along with less.

Maybe they were doing half-price or two-for-one drinks that night. Either way...SCORE!!!

A Goat walks into a bar and orders a CC and water...

Love the catty-wampus angle, plus that slate grey Cleveland sky.
