    Paddy's remodel

    Actually sounds pretty interesting, although I'm skeptical that much else will change (poor ownership/management there imo). Will have to give it a try this fall sometime though.

    Hahaha, crappy bathrooms are part of what makes campustown bars great. Every time I have to **** into a half-shattered urinal or take a deuce with no stall/door, it really brings me back to the glory days that were college life!

    There's got to be a more cost effective way to remodel a COLLEGE bar. Hiring a company from Ireland? Seems excessive.

    Fix the restrooms? Sounds like a lot of Charlie work.

    Sounds great. Too bad it will become a **** hole eventually. Should have picked an off campus bar that non-students would want to patronize.

    That may be the worst, and most meaningless, Q&A that's ever been published.

    That said, I loved Paddy's in college...glad to see its still around and getting a face lift.

    That place is an absolute dump along with the rest of the bars on welch. They shoulda just knocked the building down and restarted. I cant imagine how that place passes a health inspection.

    Pay professionals to clean the building right before the inspection.

    Unfortunately most of those inspections are announced. Some are unannounced...like they all should be.

    Crazy, I worked at Sips and helped build Paddies when it opened.

    Re: Paddy's remodel

    I was in college when Paddy's opened up. I remember the 1st year was great. Brand new place and unpopulated, it was a "prebar bar" where you could actually go and grab quick beers and carry on a converasation. Year 2 was different, it turned into a party bar with a waiting line. I graduated and havent been in since.

    AJ's just opened and it went through the same transition. Still dirt cheap and "clean" enough for me.

    Men want to have fun, women want to take fun out to the middle of the woods and shoot it in the head.
