It's not appropriate to talk over the artist.
Sit at the bar and chat it up with the bartender. Stay for at least one or two live songs from whatever band is playing.
The Calamari is AMAZING! Great crowd too...
This isn't Ironwood any more... You'll find Ironwood in the old Garry Theatre 2 blocks west (1229 9th Ave SE)
Calamari is awesome!
