Last Call @ The Uptown Bar

The Uptown Bar was demolished today.

I started sneaking into the Uptown when I was 15 to see the bands i loved play insane sets so close their sweat was dropping on you… it was the first (and last) bar i ever got carried out of, the first (and last) place I started a fist fight, the place where I met and fell in love with my first real lover and one of my very favorite places to work.

Although I stopped hanging out there a long time ago, I still feel sad tonight.
