Von's: Super Cocky & Super Cheap"/>
"Seattle's BEST Martini $3.50 all day, every day," The prime rib disco cabinet
I'm willing to be the judge of that, how 'bout you? Von's Grand City Cafe (619 Pine St.) just gets rid of the entire happy hour concept. Now every time I walk by this place the smell of the prime rib in the window turns me into Pavlov's dog. On the inside, Von's reminds me of so many joints in downtown Chicago, the brass, the black and white uniforms, the old-fashioned, behind the times decor harboring 9 to 5 banker types, ties and lips loosened from too much Early Times, or in this case gin.
Still, where better to wait it out until the next movie?
