March 2018--April 2018. Emmits Irish Pub, Chicago, Illinois. Before Emmit's opened in River West in 1996, the site was a bank with ties to the mob, then a bar popular with cops before getting shut down in the mid-1980s for dwarf tossing. In its current incarnation, Emmit's has appeared in movies such as Ocean's Eleven, Backdraft, and Uncle Buck . So yeah, it's a storied place.
January 2018-March 2018. The Swiss Restaurant and Pub. 1904 South Jefferson, Tacoma, WA. “YOU’RE A STRANGER HERE BUT ONCE” The Swiss Restaurant & Pub is housed in an historic 1913 building in the midst of downtown museums, retail shops and the University of Washington, Tacoma.
