Call it what you want: old man bar, dive bar, even oxygen tank bar. But Bob and Alice’s was an institution, and no other bar on Foster saw people waiting for its doors to open so early in the morning (though, that may speak more to the early risers rather than the bar itself). And now it’s gone—well, at least once the neon sign goes.
Until then, it’s the Starday Tavern with a “B and A” sign.
As we mentioned before, the new owner does come with some pedigree as one of the people behind Duff’s Garage. And for this reason alone, I’m confident we’ll see good things from Starday…even if just for the owner’s taste in Folk, Rockabilly, and Blue Grass, and the potential for good live music.
Let us know your thoughts as you stop in.
