Something doesn't add up: If every other Lincoln Avenue pub is packed sweaty ass to sweaty crotch, why is it that Sterchs pulls in only a handful of drinkers? It must suck, right? Well, given this venerable bar (in its forties) is inviting to newbies, loyal to its regulars (old photos on the wall, house bowling leagues, etc.) and plenty spacious for the two to mingle, that's probably not the case. Just be thankful this friendly drinking relic is still around.
