  1. No one under 21 allowed, unless you own a phone book and some foundation make-up. Hand stamped. $5 cover; beers 25 cents. Unless you want one of those blue drinks... that's extra. Now let's go bug the DJ.

Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at
