What a night! This place was totally awesome. First off, we have to send a HUGE thank you to the people who kept us drinking all night. We don't know who you all were, but you certainly do, and you guys are awesome. Judging by the beginning of the night, we were a bit concerned that it would be a slow uneventful Saturday night. Then that bell rang and, let me tell you, the party was on! The band was rocking, the crowd was rolling and the bartenders were amazing. Except for Carrie. She was a total bitch. That is also the least true statement we've ever written on this website, but she told us to say it. You rock Carrie. Anyway, we all know you guys are just here for the photos, and not for our blathering. Go ahead and check them out. Have fun. Also, we'd like to send a special thank you to April for inviting us out via FourSquare. See folks? We do listen to your requests!
Pros: Opens at 6am. Live band every night.
Cons: Live band every night. No PBR. No pool tables. No pitchers.
The Bar:  The establishment is located in a strip mall next to a State Bros. It's a small hole in the wall and you could miss it if you're not looking hard enough. It's super dark inside and we're guessing capacity is somewhere around 50 people, however, we've seen much more in there.The entire place is carpeted and has the smell of a dive bar. If you been to enough dives, you know exactly what we're talking about. Be on the lookout for the red velvet wall coverings and the old nude paintings on the wall.
The Crowd: Mostly retired. Not much of a young crowd here. Definitely a neighborhood local spot with the occasional homeless drunk wondering through the bar.
Service: Service is pretty good here. You can grab a beer at the bar, or take a seat and the bartender will come to your table.
Prices: Prices are relatively cheap, you're looking at about $3.50 for a domestic beer and about the same for a well shot. When the band starts the prices go up Jagerbombs are $7, redheaded sluts are $6.50 beer goes up to $4. Fireballs $5.50.
A/V:  Live music every night. It's the same bands every week. We recommend Eddy Day on Friday nights. There is also a jukebox. Just a standard jukebox with CDs.
Restroom: Nasty. Often smells of rotten piss or shit. But hey, it's a bathroom, we weren't expecting roses. The paper towels run out early and you're forced to dry your hands on your pants.
Bartender Chat: Ace & Carrie are what makes this bar stand out. Ace is the only bartender/person we know who wears a mullet with such pride, and Carrie, she's a cutie, tattooed head to toe and a great personality. You can catch them both there on Saturday's.
How far did $20 get us: 5 Coors light bottles before 9pm with a tip.
Closing statement: We highly recommend this bar if you enjoy the dark intimate environment with cozy lounge singers.

We rate Fling a 5 out of 5.
