Olde Tyme Dogs & Drafts dries up on Broadway

Old Tyme Dogs & Drafts has dried up at 2479 South Broadway, and the business is now listed for sale at $50,000 -- or $450,000 if you want the real estate, too.

That real estate has a long history. Before it was Old Tyme, it was briefly home to the Blue Walleye, which our former Drunk of the Week enjoyed but was like a fish out of water on this part of Broadway. It had much more success as Mike's Great Divide, a biker bar that lasted for decades (no relation to the Great Divide Brewing Co., however).
