Let us consider some of the area's more prominent knife fights. They entered the local consciousness a few years back with former KU star JR Giddens' much-publicized slash-up outside the now defunct Moon Bar, which then became Club Axis, where a recent incident of "road rage" led to another knife battle outside the 6th Street Burger King, one block from the Jet Lag Lounge, also home to a fairly recent stabdown. This past weekend the knife-action moved to the far Eastside, at Set Em Up Jack's. Are the boys scared?
Richard: "I've started carrying a knife myself and I'm not afraid to cut a motherfucker."
Chip: "It's almost enough to make one start hanging out at the hippie bars. Almost."
Larryville's home to local anarchists, the Solidarity Revolutionary Center and Radical Library, has now relocated to a spot near the Sandbar.
Chip: "I'm not happy about this. At the Sandbar, we like to listen to Jimmy Buffett and drink Bahama Mamas and watch fake hurricanes and not worry ourselves about the economy and such. Now we'll probably get stabbed."
Richard: "Word on the street is that the anarchists are forming their own kickball team."
