A Good Sign: Rudy's Bar and Grill

Once Hell's Kitchen was decorated by this sort of neon beacon. Now Rudy's, long one of the great dives in the City, is one of the last, if not the last. Inside, the beers are cheap, the waistlines are wide (aside from the occasional slumming actress), the booths are covered in plenty of duct tape, and the hot dogs are free. The human-size pig statue outside is the joint's mascot.

Jeez, it's nice to see someone use the word "dive" without adding the totally unnecessary "bar" to it. The people that do that always impress me as ones that have never seen a real dive. I've been in damn few myself.
