Reader: Old Major and Highland Tavern both lose the d-bag contest
A rare quiet moment at Old Major.
During this weekend's good weather, people were packing every patio in LoHi, hanging out of every window in the neighborhood hangouts. But even last week, as the snow was falling, people crowded into Lower Highland to watch the Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives episode featuring Highland Tavern, to fight for a seat at Old Major, to drink a Pink Pony at Highland Tap and Burger.
All the action in this hot restaurant neighborhood inspired a heated discussion... See also: - Reader: Highland Tavern could be the last true neighborhood bar in Highland - Reader: Watching Guy Fieri eat is true torture - Five reasons why Guy Fieri should dry to Douchebagistan and never come back
After a few rounds debating the douchebags frequenting assorted spots, AceRanchero weighed in with this:
I really don't see the point of debating Old Major against Highland Tavern given their apparent differences in style, menu, concept, etc. I would no more go to OM for tater tots and a PBR than I would got to HT for a designer cocktail with lamb orecchiette. (And I've done both.)
A d'bag is a d'bag, whether waxing a twirly mustache, farming a beard, or swaddled in fleece with a Carhartt diaper. However, if you really want put together a determined demographic of d'bags, sit in the window at LoHi SteakBar and watch who goes in and out of Williams & Graham.
What's your favorite spot in LoHi? And which place is likely to attract the most d-bag clientele?
