Why can't The Stranger buy it and make it their official bar? I mean, Vice owns a pub in London. Why not?

And it will flop just like Timberline II!!

OMG. I never went to the original Pony but would go to this one in a heartbeat, especially if they kept all the furniture. It would make BILLIONS.

If only we had a wealthy gay icon in the neighborhood who could make this happen?!

What's an "invert"?

I already checked urban dictionary and it didn't make any sense, either.

I heard the Jack in the Box was making a triumphant return to the Hill in that spot.....

If this happens, the special drink of the house should be called the "Colonel's cock."

I had heard a rumor that Jack in the Box was going to open at the old KFC spot.

Yeah, unfortunately I haven't got $75,000 to sink into a sleazy gay bar, so I'm gonna have to pass.

Ooo! Ooo! Can we put two-way mirrors in the windows looking out to the street?
THAT would be swoony...
Can I bartend there please? I wanna flirt with the trashy ponies too...

I'd rather have the Jack-in-the-Box.

I would definately go now that I'm back in Town! Set it up Pony Girls and Boys!

@10 That is such a great idea. If Dan or Tim Keck make this happen they just may win president on write-ins alone. There's no way this would not be a mega-hit and profitable as well.

Imagine the election party and the weekly Slog Happies.

@Napolean -- Did you not enjoy Pony? It was the most fun I've had in a gay bar in 15 years.

Brilliant idea, Dan.

When I see an open space on the Hill I think "PONY!". It will never happen but everytime I walk by the old KFC I still think "PONY!"

ELAINE: What about ponies? What kind of abnormal animal is that? And those kids who had their own ponies..

JERRY: I know, I hated those kids. In fact, I hate anyone that ever had a pony when they were growing up.

MANYA: ..I had a pony.

(The room is dead quiet)

JERRY: ..Well, I didn't really mean a pony, per se.

MANYA: (Angry) When I was a little girl in Poland, we all had ponies. My sister had pony, my cousin had pony, ..So, what's wrong with that?

JERRY: Nothing. Nothing at all. I was just merely expressting..

HELEN: Should we have coffee? Who's having coffee?

MANYA: He was a beautiful pony! And I loved him.

It was my understanding that Pony was supposed to evoke the seedy NYC gay bars of the 90s, not the greasy KFC bars of the 2000s.

Posted by NapoleonXIV | September 12, 2008 7:19 PM

70s. Seventies.

Posted by NapoleonXIV | September 12, 2008 7:20 PM

The Jack in the Box thing fell through. It's not going in, no matter what the local blogs are saying.

Drive-thru glory holes!
