In nature, predators lure their prey with colorful displays and inviting movement. This club-in-miniature relies on blue and orange neon, a huge flat-screen of ESPN action, and deeply discounted plastic cups of Coors Light. The quarry, who crowd up against the chrome bar in the spacious main room and spill back into the lounge, are the kind of gentlemen and Ladies' Night ladies whose night lives are geared towards recreating a fondly remembered frat party—beer bong and all. Other enticements include ? in the back room and Marlboro Lights in the backyard. The drink selection is unremarkable, but makes up in quantity what it lacks in quality—especially on Wednesdays when a three-hour flat-rate open bar takes effect. A DJ in an elevated booth spins eighties cheese, top 40, and generic house. Weekends are deafening and beyond packed, making it even more unclear whom, exactly, the bouncers manning the velvet rope are there to keep out.
