Totally understandable. Sometimes you just have to assert yourself and say, "this is the dumpy, grim, awful place where I'm drinking MY 30's away surrounded by old men and no women ANYWHERE and I won't be argueed with in here by another 30 year old man drinking his 30's away. This is MY living grave." I get it.

It is not understandable to go after some one with a baseball bat.

I was in Kielys bar last week and its not the "this is the dumpy, grim, awful place" you say it is. Met the owners and they are very nice, the food is very good and the atmosphere is nice. People in there are very pleasant. Had a great time, Can not wait to go back.

What is this guy talking about? Spent Friday night down at Kiely's and the place was crawling with hot college chick's. I don't think you've been down there lately, there was a bunch of Kan-jam games going on and people partying.
