Back in 91 when I first stepped into Duprees Tavern, now known as the Independent, I was given the boot for being underage. It was a weekend afternoon where a few friends of mine were waiting on Total Recall to start downstairs at the theater.
A couple years later, a buddy of mine took me back to Duprees to play some pool. It was a great atmosphere then. The bartender Sonya James, John and Richard Dupree behind the pool counter and Runa Ware and Anna Krantz running around on the service floor.
I found myself back in this place several times a week. It's not just a pool hall bar to get lost in libation. There is much more ot offer.
I've made some great friends through Duprees and the Independent, shared some laughs, shared great times. You'll still find me here several times a week where you can still find Runa behind the bar.
The Independent does have the best free Sunday Poker tournament in town as well as great pool leagues. For those of you that like to ride 2 wheeled mechanized vehicles, feel free to ride on up. It's also a motorcycle friendly establishment. It always has been and always will.
