Best Bar to Hook Up


The bar was empty as the sun set on a recent Monday night, save for a couple Indy staffers and a friend as we sat under a string of shotgun-shell holiday lights. A party of seven came in through the backdoor—or as they like to say at Stock’s, “the rear”—and got right to prodding the bartender for a round of shots. “Last time I took Rumplemintz, I projectile-puked everywhere,” one of them announced. They left just as quickly, replaced at the bar by a handsome visitor from Georgia who sidled up to try out some lines. “I’m a park ranger,” he said, stretching out a hand. “Where’s your permit?” In fairness, it lands better with the accent.
