Route 101 is one part local dive and one part tourist. It's close proximity to several hotels and high visibility seems to invite a good number of poor saps who can only visit this great city. However there are plenty of drunk old locals here too. Last time I was there, one such old drunk was fruitlessly trying to find out the favorite flowers of the bartender. Eventually she was like, "I don't really like flowers." To which he excitedly replied "Then I'll go pick you some grass!" Then downed the last of his drink and confidently strode out the door on a mission. Reasonably strong drinks (6.5/10 on the booz-o-meter), and really cheap prices. Act like a big shot and buy a round of well shots for the house - $3.50 for their well whiskey. A couple pool tables in the back, cool bartenders both times I've been, and a good (if not schizophrenic) jukebox selection make this a good place to stop in for a drink or two.

Stopped by here after driving by and seeing that they had a Colombia-Panama event... I couldn't resist! So, we go in... 5 bucks, great Salsa music. The crowd on a Saturday seems to be folks that have been following this dance party for a bit. A bit clicky like, but nice. Meet a few cool guys towards the end as I drank my third and last drink. The blond female bartender was really nice and told my friend about the place and when it is best to go... depending on what you are looking for. The male bartender was as sweet as can be and makes a GREAT Mojito ($8) and I then switched to a Boddington's ($6). My friend just had a red bull ($4). I did not have food this time, but I will definitely check it out next time. This place has gone through so many incarnations, but I really like this one the best. Go Coda!

I have a special fondness for Webster Hall, probably due to the fact that I was able to get in free...at one point I was going here at least every other week...I really love to dance and I went with my co-workers and friends.and always, always had a good time...there were open bars (with horrible watered down drinks that we used to pile up on tables). When you have to buy the drinks it sucks because they are so goddamn expensive and they are pretty watered down as well...I have many a Webster Hall story...don't know if I would go back because it is no longer free for me but I have many fond memories...in retrospect I guess the club is not the best...I think it was friends and the music that made it fun...depending what room you go into the crowd changes...I hated the techno room because of all the shirtless bridge and tunnel guys....my main rooms were the "black hole" what the call the basement hip-hop room or the main floor and occasionally the latin room. Maybe I will drag someone with me and try and relive some memories....I definitely wouldn't want to pay 30 bucks to go there though....and you have to pay for $11 drinks?? As a concert venue it's not bad I have seen Interpol and Broken Social Scene here and had a good time each time. I thought that the sound system was pretty good. Definitely not a bad place for a concert.
