photoLast week a couple of friends of mine had a boys night out in Philadelphia at Bob and Barbara’s Lounge. They tied their night on to the music of the Crowd Pleasers originally led by growling, tenor man Nate Wiley, who passed on November 20th 2006. For over a decade this band has provided honest “Liquor Drinking Music”  to any race, creed, or cross-gendered experimenters, minus the assholes. If your hankering a rib platter, a drag revue, or three sizes of shot glasses and the most devoted place to PBR, check it out.nate w2“It’s one of those places where people don’t ask questions,” says one regular at Bob and Barbara’s. “The atmosphere is healthy, this place just exudes it. You don’t find too many places like it.”
