Ernie's: Karaoke and Pool in a Scottsdale Strip Mall Reviews
Nov 16, 2007
This place is both awesome and so-bad-it's-awesome. First of all, it has a karaoke section and 2 pool tables in one bar, plus a huge outdoor section where you can smoke. That combination in itself spells good times. The drinks are moderately priced, the song selection is wide.
Now, for the so-bad-it's awesome-ness. This quite possibly was the most white trash bar I've ever been to, and that includes that place we went to in Southie. There was one chick that did weird goth-metal interpretive dances to every song. The clientele dress like they LOVE Daughtry, and they sing a lot of country, often very well. Couples would get up and dirty dance very very badly. Like, think of every white-people-can't-dance stereoype, and add in ass spanking. The awesomely grizzled old lady bartender memorized everyone's drinks, even though she took 8 orders at once.
My older, very buttoned-up-looking co-worker got wasted and we started playing pool with the locals. They all thought he was gay because he's small and was wearing a sportcoat and loafers, but before long he was downing shots with them. Digusting girly shots, of course, made of peach shnapps and jaeger, which appears to be the taste of Scottsdale.
