Lyme? No, it's called Mynt.
Your eye goes right to it when you pass by the front window or as you enter.
A Pee Wee Herman piece of furniture?
No, not really but it was my first time to Mynt so I asked a lot of questions.
It's a bar and nightclub - a place to dance - for young professionals.
Robert (Bob) the bartender said it's been open on Calhoun Street "almost two years."
I asked what was there before and he thought it was an office supply or copier store.
Admittedly, I was there fairly early so the late night crowd had not drifted in.
I was checking it out before the Sharon Jones show over at the Music Farm.
Affable Bob let me sample a draft I had not tried before. I liked it and had him bring over a pint as I studied the menu.
"Small problem," he said as he set down a half-filled glass.
"It's probably just a gas thing I need to adjust but I'll top it off when I get it working right," he explained.
So my challenge was to drink quickly.
Walked around the place after I ordered my Philly Steak sandwich with thin fries. Lots of very large pictures of celebrities all around the room.
I'm not a young professional any more but I spotted a few I recognized.
Then I had a Charleston Bill Murray Encounter.
Well, an enlarged photo of Mr. Murray, dapper in a fedora and open collared shirt.
I liked the lighting on all of the portraits on display.
In fact, the entire room was wide-open and comfortable.
Bright and colorful, lots of dark wood and a lighted bar top.
I'm sure the young dancers flock there.
It's been a long time since I was a young dancer. Or even an older one.
I asked if Murray had dropped by?
"Not yet, " Bob answered, "that's kind of what we hoped would happen when we put up his picture."
The Philly was very tasty and I had a second beer after my first one was topped off.
My timing was good - that sandwich had just been added to the menu.
And I like skinny fries.

Oh, and look at the Pee Wee's Playhouse link.
