- If you appreciate everything you've got, doesn't it stand to reason that with a couple choice enhancements (e.g., breast implants, or breast implants), you'll love it even more? Of course you will -- case in point, Fly Bar. From the peeps behind Fly Bar on Divis, the new FB lives where Brick once did, with some leftover fixtures (that big copper bar, scattered two-tops n' comfy banquettes...bricks), some FB Divis steez (purple n' green walls, casual vibe), and a couple key augmentations that push it over the top by appealing to the kid in you: video games and booze. Food-wise, new FB's similar, i.e., plenty of cheap apps (chicken skewers w/ spicy peanut sauce, roasted-garlic-aided baked Brie, etc), sandos like the meatloaf & provolone on a baguette and the "Smokin'" turkey BLT, plus pizzas ranging from the pepperoni/sausage/prosciutto "MMMMM...Meat" to the portobello/pesto "Shroom Pie", which smells purple, and feels delicious. Trumping its beer-/wine-only predecessor, there's a host of signature cocktails for seven bucks (e.g., pisco sours, dark rum/ginger Island Root Beer, gin/lime Sour Cherry Punch), and a cutty back room that houses the best thing ever: a custom, nerd-built four-player arcade unit complete with cup holders, which costs nothing to play and has "like, every game ever" -- oh, really? It's got Bad Dudes? Since gaming pairs well with beer, FB stocks 30 of 'em (w/ six on tap), including gems like Abita Strawberry lager, Obsidian Stout, and Arrogant Bastard -- exactly what you've become since getting that luscious rack.
