Nine times out of ten, you will see drunk grown-ass men fight each other in Crehan's. It might be over pool. It might be over a busted woman. It might be over Vietnam. Certainly it will be a dirty fight, using whatever is at hand. Fists (right there at the end of your arms). Bar stools (within arms reach). A bottle (inside one of the aforementioned things at the end of your arms). The bar tenders are nice fellows; probably they'll bust it up after some of the steam escapes the warring parties. Or, on occasion, everyone will retreat into the bathroom to do some coke together. In the morning, everything will be fine.
