Flint Artifacts: Teddy Bear Bar Matches

Something about the name of this bar just seems all wrong to me. Anyone out there willing to defend the honor of the Teddy Bear Bar?


  1. "The Teddy Bear Bar" -- The official bar of the Penn State football coaching staff.

  2. Now called "The Zoo". Teddy Bear Bar may seem inappropriate, but remember Flint was home to Titty City, Doobies, and The Beaver Trap.


Thanks for commenting. I moderate comments, so it may take a while for your comment to appear. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. 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
