The Packer Inn banner I keep seeing here reminded me to check out the bar as I drove by it yesterday. Except, it was no longer The Pack... it's now called Chief's I think.
I also drove by a few weeks ago on a Saturday night and was perplexed as to why the parking lot was empty and no lights on inside.
My last visit inside was probably early last Summer... and my how the crowd had changed. The place was packed... outside of the bartender, I believe I was the only other caucasian in the joint. Hip hop was blaring from the jukebox and the tension in the air was palpable.
We left after a single drink and I learned later that evening that a woman stuck another woman with a busted beer bottle over a "weave" comment.
Was this local institution just another victim of the hip-hop crowd or does anyone know why the Pack no longer ceases to exist?
