    Not a fan
    Been there a few times.A friend of mine told me once at Spurs that there is nothing more unfriendly and scarier that a gay bar.Never been much of a bar fan and I really hate the way a certain crowd always hangs out in front of Simon says. I agree with the review that there is a certain criminal element feeling to this bar.So here's the deal.I will keep my money.

    While Others Come & Go, This Place is a Mainstay...
    Haven't been there in a (long) while -- haven't been anywhere in a (long) while, actually -- but this place used to be the coolest place to hang out w/your besties (male and female) and P-A-R-T-A-Y!. And, Yep, everyone DID know your name. Ah, the memories I have of Simon's in the 80s. It's a wonder I HAVE any memories from that place. I see from the site banner that the crowd has skewered somewhat older over the years or maybe it's just that the people in their 40s and 50s who go there now are the the 20-somethings who went there in the 80s and 90s (like me)...

    Remember Simon Says when it was called "Under Construction" in 1969
    Looking forward to Octoberfest, cuz it's one of the only places where people can go in and get a real drink or pack of smokes, until they look around and realize it's a gay bar! For such a small little bar, it's a great place to meet someone, clean, and seems the str8's never seem to catch on that it's gay. Great!
