    29 Steps & DOD

    Hi Everyone!

    It has been two weeks of hell and 18 hour days but I have managed to get the Pub in good working order. I promised an update and pics, so here they are!

    I have three taps up and running. Harp, Bass, & Guinness. Within two weeks I will be getting two additional lines up and running, Hacker Pschorer Wiess and New Glarus Spotted Cow. The selection of beer in the bottle cooler is the 3rd best selection in Green Bay.

    I have a very cool staff. My doorman is all of about 155 pounds, is very non threatening looking individual and reads Friedrich Nietzsche & Schopenhauer. He did the industrial interchange picture in the picture gallery.

    My head bartender has 4 years of art school under her belt and had work in galleries in NY while she lived there. Another case of significant others draging you down. But on the positive side, some of the beer mirrors are coming down and we are going to try and offer local artists (starving types )wall space if they want it. She sounds like she wants to do that project.

    The restrooms are in GREAT working order now. People are VERY happy and the word is starting to get around town that the place is cleaned up again. Business is picking up already because of the cleanliness level alone. I passed the health inspection with flying colors yesterday. The swabs used on the glasses never turned colors at all!

    THE PLACE IS NOW IN GREAT SHAPE! Come and have a beer.

    29 Steps
    119 1/2 S. Washington Street
    Green Bay, WI 54301

    8 pm to 2:00 am or 2:30 am Every day

    Check out the pics of the place in the member galleries (Duke Of Dystopia)

    I'm going to be in Green Bay late on October 7th and plan on hanging out until the 10th. Rumpy may be joining me. Cyburbia party headquarters north - here I come.

    I wish I lived in Green Bay, but being a Broncos fan and going to your bar would probably not be good for me.
    You get all squeezed up inside/Like the days were carved in stone/You get all wired up inside/And it's bad to be alone

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone

    My friend's from Green Bay. I'll have to tell him about it so he can check it out the next time he's in town.

    Now THAT is a bar. I'll make sure to stop by and have a brew when my adventures take me north.
    Dude, I'm cheesing so hard right now.

    Nice pics DoD.

    Hopefully I should be able to make the pilgramage as Budgie said

    I'm jealous. Congratulations and best wishes.

    Off-topic:
    BTW: ever see the Tuborg Ol poster of the guy standing against a fence on some farm path? It's summer and he's wiping his brow and you just know the guy is thinking "I need a beer". Great poster. Kinda reminds me of the standing guy artwork you have there.

    One suggestion on the art, if it has prices on it, make sure the wait staff know how/have the ability to sell it. I went to an advertised art show and sale at a restaurant/gallery and wanted to buy a piece and was told to contact the artist directly. Guess what, the artist lost a sale, I made a special trip of 2 hours each way and am not planning on being in that town again for a long time.

    Congrats.

    Great Place!!

    I like that it's upstairs and not in some nasty basement.

    Beautiful interior - very "neighborhood bar" but not "trendy bar".

    the building you're in is nice too. a nice simple "main street" building.

    Good luck, and next time my wife and I go to MI - UP I will make an effort to stop over for a drink at your place - the address is now in my planner. 8-|
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    The ends can justify the means.

    Nah, not true, the worst danger you may have is the risk of alcahol poisoning because you try to keep up with the Wisconsin girls (We won't let you compete with the male proffessionals! Its to dangerous for you )

    @ Donk
    Thanks for the art tip. My bar staff knows a lot more about art than I can dream of. We will work it out. 10 years ago, a wall full of beer mirrors would have been the bomb, but now it just seems tired.

    @ Buddgie & Rumpy
    You are coming for the right time, weekends the place is and liveley but never TOO packed (ok, sometimes, but it comes and goes). We have a bar hopping culture here, so rarely does a large crowd ascend the steps and sit all night. There is a ncie exchange of people all night long.

    Punk & Rockabilly mostly on the jutebox. Nothing else is like this place in the whole fox river valley area. Not even in Appleton 30 minutes away. Cafe Esspreso downstairs is a VERY nice casual restaurant with good foo foo food (its not a steak and burger joint).

    Next time I go home to my parents house in the UP I will have to drive through Green Bay to check it out. It looks like a great place!

    Did I miss something / discussion about the name "29 Steps"
    is it because there are 29 steps up from the 1st floor
    or is there some deeper meaning to it ?

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    There are 29 steps from the first floor up. even though they are only 5 or 6 inch steps, you feel like having a drink after you reach the top.

    looks good Duke!

    If I'm ever in Green Bay, I'll definitely stop in!

    Sould I ever make it to Green Bay, 29 Steps will be my first and, if the evening goes well, possibly last stop.

    Wow, Cyburbia has a mascot, a groupie and now a bar to call it's own. All we need now are some greek letters, a house and an antagonistic Dean.

    Duke.....

    Your new place sounds great. When this Bear is all better and I'm traveling north to be in my beloved U.P., I will stop in.

    Probably summer, 2005, because I will be unable to go in crowds for about six months after my bone marrow stem cell transplant.

    My wife is also a Bronco fan and will wear a Bronco shirt. I will have on a Steelers shirt. Of course, since it will be after the next Super Bowl, this Bear will be yacking unmercifully about finally "getting one for the thumb".
