The Bar Tab


Though they've been open since September of last year – and therefore aren't exactly new –¬†Bombshell's Tavern (formerly the dingy biker bar Junkyard Saloon at 5405 Edgewater Drive) has recently been doing the entertainment equivalent of throwing spaghetti at the wall. Drag shows, rockabilly burlesque, metal shows, hip-hop DJs – there's no telling what the vibe is going to be on any given night, but the place always does it with gusto. Here's hoping nothing sticks, and Bombshell's continues to be one of the more flexible and eclectic spots in town.

And from the “We don't know what the hell is going on” department: Mr. Sisters at 5310 E. Colonial Drive suddenly and inexplicably closed up shop last fall. The formerly hot-pink facade has since been painted a neutral tone, and we recently noticed that the digital sign out front says the space will soon reopen as Off Limits Nightclub & Restaurant. We looked for a bit more info, but visiting the webpage for Off Limits (offlimitsorlan do.com) is a bit … baffling. The site contains the Mr. Sisters logo, a “Welcome to Off Limits Nightclub & Restaurant” message and some odd links to websites that tell the tale of the murder investigation of a Missouri millionaire. We're not sure what all the drama is about, but it should make for a really fun opening night – if they ever get around to announcing one.
