The Black Lodge

At the confluence of 15th Avenue and Kingsway lies the Black Lodge, a real-life play on the "extradimensional" in David Lynch's Twin Peaks and a nice place to wind down at if the staff are not pushing too much 'tude. It's been what -- three years since the Black Lodge opened? -- and the only thing its operators have lost sight of is the audio, which, in the beginning, was kept behind the bar and thoughtfully woven into the fabric of its surroundings, but is now, at its worst, the kind of 30 watts-a-side, speaker-driven rawk music better suited to hurling one's body through space than relaxing over a bowl of chili and a mountain fresh can. * > *
