We have been going to the Waterhole for about 30 years now, it has always been my favorite bar on the planet, and I am shocked at the "new" Waterhole". 2 weeks ago we went in and could not believe the "kid" music being played on the stereo. We left because it was pretty annoying. Then last week 2 friends went in, sober, to play pool and some punks wanted to fight over quarters on the table. How juvenile. The other night we tried again to hang out and all the 20-somethings were acting ridiculous again, puffing up and letting us know this is their place now, hats on backwards, pants on the ground. My friend told the bartender that Larry would roll over in his grave if he ever heard that kind of crappy music in the Waterhole, and they told us "too bad, leave if you don't like it, it's under new management now". We went outside to get away from the whole scene, and they came out and turned up the outside speakers just to be punks. That's it for us, we left there knowing that the end of a long, cool, era is over, and we are all pretty sad about it.
By the way, where all all the old Waterhole people going now? Surely not there, to listen to techn--crap and to fight with kids.
