Beware the rock and roll laundromat:

The worst bar experience I've ever had; Sudsy Malones.

When David and I were still in college and we didn't have a washer and dryer in our apartment, we had three options: go down to the scary cellar and put quarters into an ancient machine, go to a Laundromat, or save up all our laundry and invade my dad's house to use his.

A Laundromat that's also a bar and a music venue seemed like a really good idea. So we naively took our laundry there and went.

Sudsy's is dark. I didn't know any better and ordered an appletini –I realize now I should have stuck with a beer—and the bartender gave me a sneer when I asked for it. When I brought it back to the table, I realized there were 4 little bugs in it of varying types. Yikes.

David and I put our laundry in the washer and waited, me staring at the bugs in my drink and us feeling very out of place with the short vine crowd.

What made us flee was the fact that everyone was smoking—this was before the ban—and I guess if you already smoke, having someone smoke around your laundry you are attempting to clean is not a big deal. David and are both non smokers. We decided to grab our semi-soaked laundry out of the washer and take our chances in the cellar. We have never been back.
