Sully's was definitely a step up from JJ's Other Place. It was clean and nice looking, had a couple of real nice dartboards and a very nice shuffleboard game. We found a place to sit in front of the TV showing the Rays-Red Sox game. I've been enjoying the Red Sox collapse for the past couple of weeks so I spent a lot of time with the Rays and Red Sox over the weekend. Then the lone bartender came over to our table to take our order, a couple of Bob's 47's (on tap). Of the 8 taps at Sully's, only 3 are of the macro variety and the light version of each of the major brands. The other 5 were Boulevard Pale Ale, Bob's, Ranger IPA, Fat Tire, Free State Ad Astra and something else.
Okay, we didn't really take their stuff, but we very easily could have because Carrie went out front to smoke. When she came back I got a bottle of Lagunitas Little Sumpin' Sumpin' just to show my support. The gang of 4 came back in and we learned one of their names, Meredith. I'm so glad I learned her name because it gives the story a more personal touch. In the middle of telling some story that I wasn't paying attention to, I just know she was talking, Meredith belched. It was loud and gross and wildly inappropriate. Sure, Meredith said excuse me immediately to her friends, but what about the 2 people sitting at the table next to her? What about the 2 dudes at the bar? I have 3 kids so I constantly hear burps and farts, but when I'm out in public I don't want to hear either of those 2 things from adults, especially adults dressed in KU garb. Thanks for that Meredith, you made me feel bad for KU fans.
Everything about Sully's was a nice surprise except for Meredith and the bathrooms. The bathrooms were reasonably clean, but not redone and some of the damage done to those bathrooms by the decades of smoke that infested the building was still noticeable. The only way to get rid of that grime is with a sander. I'm not sure what can be done with Meredith. But, everything else was nice and certainly worth a visit now and again when I'm over there wanting a beer.
