I went to Sidewalk to drink, and the atmosphere is pretty typical of a Fan bar - dark and narrow - but it wasn't crowded and the patio was available on a warm Friday night. Unfortunately, we felt like we couldn't order shots because every time we did, our waitress asked if she could take one with us (not if we could buy her one), but then subsequently put it on our bill if we didn't say no (I guess an akward ""sure,"" followed by an are-you-serious-type laugh means ""please let us buy you a drink"" to some people). So from that point on, although we wanted to order more drinks, we did not because we feared we'd also have to pay for the waitstaff to drink. Additionally, she didn't want to wait on you unless it involved taking shots on your tab (it took about 20 minutes to get a check, but about 3 to get those shots!), and she slurred whenever she spoke. I think we now know why it was the only fan bar not crowded on a Friday night.
