      The sign says Public House, but The Village Idiot just the nickname of the joint? Anybody try it out yet? It looked packed on Saturday night when I drove by.

        You are referring to The Village Idiot. It's in a 'soft opening' at the moment. The owners are all a bunch of great guys with experience in clubs and restaurants. It'll be a casual, fun eatery, with traditional pub-fare but perhaps a little bit nicer. They have a few really great beers on tap that aren't too common in other bars.
        I think this place will be warm and inviting. All of the staff were pleasant and engaging and for doing NO P.R. it was actually pretty crowded on Friday evening.
