Note to Loyola kids: If you’re old enough, you can drink here. Given that it’s just across the street from campus, we’re really surprised the gritty space isn’t crawling with students. Then again, maybe the locals here could go without hearing phrases like “Thirsty Thursday,” “Wasted Wednesday” and “Sloshed Saturday.”

I had one of the worst experiences of my life last night at this place. I stopped by to buy a six-pack at the store in Bruno's on my way home. I was listening to a friend on the phone and walked straight to the back to browse. The employee at the front of the store started yelling at me to get off the phone. I was confused and wasn't even sure he was talking to me. He ran back and shoved a ratty cardboard sign in my face and started telling me to "get out of his store" (plus several harsh expletives. I said, "what is going on? I'm not checking out, I'm not even talking." THE SIGN SAYS NO CELL PHONES! And he began screaming at me. I left and called the police, then he came out to the sidewalk and started calling me anti-gay slurs and pushing up against me.

The police were of little help, but I am horrified by my experience here. I will never go back and am actually afraid to walk by the place now. I love this neighborhood and am beside myself that I've been terrorized by a store employee at Bruno's.
