Flea Circus















Great beer list, fatty foods and a dingy vibe- what's not to like about Westport Flea Market? Yet I only manage to darken the door of the institution once every year or two. That's gotta change.

    It's the weird ordering set-up they have that bugs me, plus I don't think they take credit cards and I don't always carry enough cash.

    That's all true, Meesha.

    Food and drink ordering is entirely separate. But that's a positive for me. The waitstaff at a live music establishment I frequent, for example, scowls at me because I never order food. That's not an issue at the Flea.

    And yeah, you need cash to avoid the on-site ATM fees.

    That is crazy, DNA. And the location- halfway between the Record Bar and the Riot Room- is perfect.

    I have the same credit card problem that kcmeesha has with The Flea. But I never thought about your point of view on the setup. I have definitely been scowled at by servers because I only wanted to drink at bars before. I didn't really think about the fact you're not dinged for that at The Flea.

    Although, I've NEVER liked their "appropriate attire required" sign on the place. It's a neighborhood bar. I've challenged it a few times by coming in with dirty overalls on and no one's ever said anything, but they should just take the stupid sign down. And their ruben's are grissly.

    Still, I like the joint. It's just that it has a lot of things going against it.

    I never noticed the "appropriate attire" sign. Is that a joke? I mean, you've seen the men's room...

    Yeah, I almost had to wonder if it was a joke as well. And until I started moving closer to westport I didn't really visit often enough to care one way or the other.

    I'll probably get good and drunk and ask them one night. But it's a pretty official looking sign and not surrounded by a bunch of other snarky sarcastic stuff so I never knew what to make of it.

    I do love it when they troll the plaza with their Flea-mobile.
