If you prefer a venue where curse words are welcome and curtain hangers are not, the Trackside Tavern (on E. College, across the tracks from the old Depot) is your place in Decatur. While some o the customers may act immature, nobody under 21 is allowed in anytime (which makes me wonder why the urinal is mounted so low -- either they're hoping for height challenged adult customers, laws require it, or one other reason I'll not type). Since it's been rebuilt, it's lost its dive image, but the late night and early morning crowd is working hard to recreate it (if somebody would just stop painting over the gross graffiti on the restroom walls!).
Sunday night and early Monday (Halloween) morning, the Track (as we regulars call it) will be throwing a party and costume contest. Awards (to be determined, but likely involving house cash and other things) will be announced at 1AM. The party will go on until 3AM.
Even if you've never been in the old or new Track, and regardless of your gender, sexual preference, race, religion, sports team, or political persuasion; your welcome to join us and you will be warmly received (as long as your behavior stays somewhere within tolerable limits).
