Polk Gulch: Over the weekend, Kozy Kar Bar formally opened in the old In Touch space. And folks, there's an awful lot going on within the confines of 1548 Polk Street. First of all, the bar's website is NSFW on account of boobies.

Naturally, the place currently boasts five stars on Yelp. Is it a shitshow per se? Probably not yet, but that doesn't mean it can't be delightfully trashy and tacky in an amazing kind of way, though it's anyone's guess as to how long before that "delightfully" tag gets replaced by someone less ... rosy. Either way, let's take a look at the first weekend's internet buzz from the year's most important bar opening. Hold on:
