What? What do you mean you’ve never walked under that neon sign whose musical notes carry the tune to “How Dry I Am?” What do you mean you’ve never imbibed beneath those model aircraft suspended from the ceiling? Studied the jukebox? Traded stories about how you got yelled at by Russ Settle for hanging your coat on your stool and not the rack? Even though Russ has passed, his spirit — and his infamous list of rules — lives on in this throwback to a time when every American neighborhood seemed to have a corner bar that served beer, burgers and the occasional shot of bourbon. Settle’s joint, in addition to honoring Russ’s time as a WW II flier, also served as backdrop for Dan Wakefield’s novel Going All the Way. Don’t curse, don’t argue with the barkeep, just take off your hat, order a cold beer and a hamburger or a tenderloin. You won’t be disappointed.
