Came to Austin to visit a friend for the weekend and he suggested we head over to a bar in his neighborhood to watch the Alamo Bowl. I noticed the bartender was surly when I asked him what the beer was with the red handle that had the name facing the wall. He gave me a name that I had never heard and became visibly agitated when I said "I had never heard of it, what kind of beer is it." His response, "Beer". I smiled and asked if he could be more specific, was it a lager and ale, what? His response, "I just serve it I don't drink it." Okay I'll have an XXXX then. My buddy came back from the restroom ordered and we sat in front of the 4 televisions the place has by the door. 2 huge tv's and 2 small ones and all of them are showing the NYGiants v. New England game. I say to the guy, "excuse me, could you put one of those on the aggie PSU game". He responds that the tvs are set up for the game and if he changes the channel he will have to be changing the channel all night. (never mind the fact that those two games are the only ones on and that changing the channel involves picking up a small box and pointing it to the tv). I again ask nicely. You have the patriots game on 4 tv's, would you please put it on the alamo bowl." He responds by throwing my credit card on the counter that I used to start a tab, picking up our beers and yelling, "there's the door". I probably would have been angry had the whole scene not been so totally surreal.
After reading some of the other comments here I see that Jimmy has a bit of a history. That dude is totally insane.
Pros: neighborhood bar
Cons: Bartender is a rager.
