Nick's Original Big Train Bar, Minus the Drive-Through, Gets City Council OK

City Council is thrilled about this

City Council excitedly OK'd the second coming of Tulane Avenue watering hole Nick's Original Big Train Bar at its meeting this week.

The council disapproved of the bar's plan to have a coffee drive-through—probably a good ruling for a bar that's known for a drink called a "1-800-F-ck-Me-Up"—which is in line with the City Planning Commission's recommendation.

It's reported that the council's "discussion was brief and approval was swift," with many members reminiscing about the bar and alluding to debaucherous times there. City Council members—they're just like us!
