    Cincinnati Trivia

    OK, needed a place to ask for some trivia help, and it can be used for stuff like this in the future.

    I'm madly searching to find the name of a bar, that was in business in at least the mid-to-late 70's (maybe longer).
    It occupied the space/building that now houses Hang Over Easy in what we use to call the Short Vine area.

    Back then there was a restaurant on Vine called In Cahoots, and after eating there we could roll down the little hill to the bar on the corner.
    The bar had (I'm pretty sure) an etching in the window of a skyline of a city (think Cintas' court). Since I was not always completely sober, the etching may have been on the mirrored glass behind the bar/or both. It's hazy to say the least.

    Any ideas what the bar was called?
    ...he went up late, and I was already up there.

    Did not know that.
    But I'm thinking back in the 70's. Just can't remember the damn name.
    Getting old.

    Nope. (then again, I'm hoping I'll recognize the name if somebody hits on it. That may be wishful thinking.)

    used to do wednesdays on a side street off of short vine. It was nurse's night and Bob Shreve was the bartender. I think it had the etched glass, but I can't remember the name!

    Double Deuce

    Edit: First person to get the reference without cheating and looking it up I'll buy you a beer at the Cintas Center next season. Obviously I won't know if you cheated or not, so honor system.
