Yelp: 10 Best/Closest Bars to Marquette
« on: December 27, 2017, 03:58:41 PM »
1. Tin Widow
2. Jim's Time Out
3. Swingin' Door Exchange
4. High Note
5. Pabst Milwaukee Brewey
6. Sobelman's Valley
7. Conway's
8. Murphy's
9. Camp Bar (3rd Ward)
10. Caff's

I would add Valley Lights and maybe Third Space if Pabst is considered a bar.  I have never been to the Tin Widow.  Sounds awesome. Pretty solid list but Conway's?  Apparently, great smoked meats to go with the sticky floor.

Not sure I always agree with Yelp's ranking algorithm.

You are much better off looking at the detailed reviews in the top 15-20 places and make your decision from there.

Also, "bars" is way too general a category. Do you want a dive bar or a classy cocktail location? Proper use of the filters is key on Yelp.
Have some patience, FFS.

If docs isn't on that list it's not a list I want to see.

Possibly the most hole-in-the-wall bar on a college campus in the United States.

JTOs and Conways should not be anywhere near this list.

Conway's is the only bar on this list that was there when I went to MU. I didn't like it, but I did frequent Harp & Shamrock right across the street.

H&S was owned by very proud and open racist Bernie Conway, whose son ran Conway's.

To be fair, I believe it was called “Ye Olde Conway’s” at the time, and slavery might have still been legal in a few US states. 
Wow, I'm very concerned for Benny.  Being able to mimic Myron Medcalf's writing so closely implies an oncoming case of dementia.

JTO’s is amazing. Now that they lost the pool table it’s less amazing but still amazing.

Bernie had a big dog who was friendly to customers ... as long as they were white. If a black person happened to walk into the bar, the dog would go crazy.

Bernie also thought I was Italian and called me "the Guinea." I didn't want the dog sicced on me, so I never told him I was Jewish.

Obviously, I would never give him a dime of my business now (if he were still alive). But back then I was just a stupid kid who went where his buddies did. Plus, we practically drank free there because the bartender loved us. Free beer outweighs human rights for a college kid!

I tended bar at Conway's in the late 90's.  Run by Debbie, who put most of the bar's "profits" up her nose.

Does Conway's really have good smoked meats? Not sure I could mentally prepare myself to eat in there. We should send the Scoop Smoker crewe in there to do a review.

I would rather eat at a strip club buffet than at Conways.
