Bumpers Closed!

    I just read on the Dispatch site that Bumpers closed. Man, that sucks. Okay, maybe not so much for me since I have not been there since I graduated from OSU, but that place was great. I used to meet friends from grad school there because we lived all over the west and northwest sides of Columbus. They had great sandwiches and always a good cold brew. Just a great place to watch a game and hang out with friends.

    "Bumpers, a popular bar with food at 1138 Bethel Rd., for almost three decades, closed in the fall. It changed its name to Eleven 38 for three months, but closed and the property was sold."

    Damn, first the place near Rolling Acres in Akron I used to meet up with high school friends while we were home on breaks from college (Don't remember the name, but it was a deli with walls of beer. We used to try all different kinds and the waitresses wouldn't charge us but a third of the cost.) and now Bumpers. What is next?!?

    They totally gayefied it from what I have heard.
    That Eleven 38 or whatever it was was a trendy club bar thingy, a ruination of what it used to be.
    Stupid move on their parts, that place was allways packed on buckeye game days.
    For me though, I only watched 1 game there ever, and that was a loss, so I never went back.

    gregorylee I'd rather be napping!!

    I used to work there in the early 90's, so did my roomate but before I got there. They did have some great sandwiches, that place could turn into one big drunken hole on the weekends...

    JB was pretty much a dick though to work for.

    Yeah, it sucks ass. That was my favorite place to hang out and catch games. I remember getting there at 10AM a few times and leaving at around midnight during the first weekend of the NCAA tournament.

    That 38-11 place sucked ass. Seemed like the kind of place eurotrash might hang out in if they wanted to visit a dive.
    The place just reopened 2-3 weeks ago, I think it's called Sherlock's now. Haven't been there yet but it looked like they had some patronage the last time I drove by.
