a while back, i received a picture message of a menu excerpt titled “$5 FERNET MONDAYS”. what is this wonderous thing, you ask? simply put, it’s tommy gun’s answer to your manic monday: a shot of fernet branca and a pbr tall boy for $5. upon entering, you cant help but notice the establishment’s namesake posted above the backroom’s doorway– and while a few months ago the gun motif might have felt more like a design decision, the recent gun frenzy perhaps indicates that they were just ahead of their time. apart from decor, i was surprised to find that the bar was rather chill on multiple occasions despite its central location, making it a great option for a tête-à-tête or tethered work-night.
oh, and p.s. they have WHISKEY WEDNESDAYS too…but i’ll save that for another day.
