Best real doormen in a neighborhood of fakes (2008)


Dallas had the Doomsday Defense; Pittsburgh, the Steel Curtain. Hogs and Heifers has MARK AND JOE, two giants who work the nighttime door of the only real bar in the meatpacking district. These two guys are gentlemen, and they're always kind to girls and dogs, but they're dead serious about ID; try an end-around and you'll never see the inside of one of the oldest continuously working bars—one with a real country jukebox—in the city. That would be a real shame.
