Last call…kind of

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2007 | Cocktail Hour, You Call This News?

If you’re a fan of Art Altenburg’s Concertina Bar, you’ll want to get over there in the next couple weeks. Sure, the bar will still be there after that, but Art won’t be and the new owner’s letting in accordians. (Are there no standards any more? Sheesh.) (Kidding. I really don’t care.) (But for those of you who are wondering what the difference is: concertina vs. accordion.) (Ok. I’m done with parentheses now.) (Or maybe now.)

I haven’t been to Art’s in ages, but I think I’ll need to make a stop in before Art leaves. Just won’t be the same without him.

As I mention in my blog, yeah, it won’t be the same without him, but Andy Kochanski is a wonderful character in his own right. The place will not the be same, but it will still be a Destination. Trust me on this.

Oh, I don’t doubt that.

I’m not saying it won’t be just as great of a place. It’ll just be different.


The kind of people who think concertinas are accordians are not unlike the kind of people who insist on referring to mandolins as “banjos” (take it from one who knows). There is a special place in hell for them and all their ilk.


We loved that place. What are new hours on Fridays? What days will there be polkas? Does anyone have their NEW phone # for details????
