    Helvatia Tavern lives, they still sell RC and you can see the years roll by above you in the styles of hats.

    The big freaking burger is still there, the fries are great and the blue cheese sauce is thick with lumps of actual cheese.

    Obviously I love it, cash only.

    People usually start showing up around 5 or so, and some stay until 8 or so.

    So, um, the evening.
