best bar owner who drives a hearse (2008)


Drop by the rocker outpost Bellevue Bar most weekends and you'll notice an imposing black hearse parked out front. "I always wanted a tricked-out hell ride," says owner JIMMY DUFF. "It suits my Halloween lifestyle." Duff bought the mint Caddy two years ago from a Rochester funeral parlor, and "had to throw out all the bodily fluid-stained drop cloths stashed under the seats." Since then he's been mistaken for the wrestler the Undertaker, chauffeured a goth couple to the senior prom, and witnessed more than a few passersby cross themselves. And yes, the coffin is still in back—according to the big sign in the rear window, it's "RESERVED FOR BIN LADEN."
