People can get an over-priced watered-down drink anywhere, okay? They come to Montero's for the atmosphere and the attitude. Okay? That's what the stoopit sh*t all over the walls is about. It's about fun.

They bolt crappy art to hotel walls to keep this particular kind of thing from happening. Just saying.

Legendary sailor bar? Guessing it's a euphemism for flaming gay hangout, like a steel mill or biker joint.

He took a life preserver? It's kinda big, isn't it? Were the bartenders and bouncers drunk too?

Hopefully the bar doesn't sink before it can be recovered or replaced.

Just order a new one already! They're pretty cheap on amazon. scruff it up a bit...no one will be the wiser.

Of course they didn't just take it down themselves as a publicity stunt. You can tell because they reported this to the police, and they're obviously not going to risk a charge of wasting police time.

Oh, wait, they only posted on twitter and told a reporter? Never mind.

Oh man... what is they to do now?

"it's hard to drink without a circle hanging from the wall...."

I'm going to apologize for the hipster, and say thank you for taking them.  The atmosphere around Cincinnati gets just a little bit better with every hipster that flees to New York.

speaking of cherished and now lost sailing mementos in the NYC area...

One night in the late 1980's, I very much enjoyed the opportunity to have dinner at the NY Yacht Club. It remains the "restaraunt" where I witnessed the most rigorously perfect service I had seen until then and to this day. White-gloved attendants standing several feet back from the table, only taking everyone's plates when _everyone_ at the table had finished their's for a given course, etc etc. The food was damned good. And the pictures, boat models in glass cases, etc that were everywhere and reflected a century of sailing were just gorgeous.  What a great night.

The America's Cup had been there since something like 1870, and as one walked into the place, there was a circular room that one had no choice but to pass along the way into the restaurant. In this smallish room, there was a large circular wooden pedestal for the Cup that was clearly considered the rightful location for it by every NYYC member for 100+ years.

But it had been lost to only a few years earlier. I was naturally disappointed about not being able to see it.

They have a vested interest in getting the ring back

Erm, guys, NYC tramp guys that sit in that stinky-ass room drinking whatever the hell that is in your hand and feigning pleasure at the literal flotsam and jetsam crowding out every available inch of floor, wall and ceiling. Yes, I'm addressing you guys.
You're disgusting. That 'bar' you frequent, it's a biohazard. Really, you have to sit in a room with the contents of fourteen tornadoes thrust onto every surface like so much sloppy wet 'pre-eaten' proteins?
I'm a minimalist and live my life with a precise sobriety, you sirs, you disgust me.

me too. I can barely take being waited on in a normal restaurant setting. I hate getting shoes shined, getting a massage, etc. I just dont like the feeling of someone waiting on me like that. Rather do it myself if i can.

I didn't mean to make it sound so creepy. They weren't there the whole time. They'd leave and only reappear at the perfect times... It was impressive and awesome... cheers
