While we're already ten years deep into the 21st Century, the 20th Century remains powerfully fixed in our minds...get with the times, Fox!!! For a bar reminding you about it even more, hit Kill Your Idol.
Taking over the former Blue space, Kill's a nouveau dive bar/time capsule of iconic 1900s people & things: a life-size nunchucking Bruce Lee and a Jaws head above the bar, an upside-down astronaut dropping from the ceiling, models of the Titanic and a P-51 fighter, a sweet 70s Playboy pinball machine, and a talking deer trophy whose mouth moves when the bartender gets on the PA system to tell you to stop uncomfortably hitting on the 70s Playboy pinball machine. To make that deer even more hilarious, there's a full bar slinging liquor staples plus cheap taps/cans plus bottles of Arrogant Bastard, Blue Paw Wheat from Sea Dog, and Dogfish Head, a name they swear is not based on experience. And there's grub: boozetastic cupcakes made with Baileys and Kahlua, plus plenty from The Alibi next door, including a Philly Cheesesteak w/ thin-sliced ribeye, grilled onions, 'shrooms, and Whiz (the owner's a Philly guy), a shrimp po boy with Creole mayo, and hand-cut fries doused in stuff like truffle oil and ranch dust, which makes you completely unable to sleep, but awesome at cow tipping.
Music comes from a vintage jukebox stocked with tunes from the punk/alt scene that grew out of NYC and London in the 70s and 80s: Sonic Youth, Lou Reed, Madness, The Smiths, The Ramones, and Iggy Pop, all of whom surely got pretty deep into their own fair share of 20th Century foxes.
