Hey AP Mike
What are you currently reading?  Do you recommend it?

 :-*

Elmore Leonard's Glitz. It's good so far.

I just myself started reading Leonard. Do you have a favorite?

LaBrava is a good one. Glitz was good as is Freaky Deaky which I'm currently reading. The Library of America put out 2 vols. of Leonard recently. They include his best from the 70s and 80s. I haven't read them all, but you probably can't go wrong with any of them.
See God, Kai

The few that I've read are really fun. I have a big collection of his westerns that I need to start.

Very true. Even lesser Leonard is still Leonard.

What's the most out of hand someone has ever gotten at Massa's?

No idea why I am asking.

That is a great question, Jon.

It doesn't matter why; you followed intuitive inspiration.

I've had a couple close calls with fights almost breaking out (fortunately, I was able to prevent one and a customer was able to prevent the other). Once, a guy spit on the floor because he said this was acceptable behavior at another bar. I had to remind him that it wasn't the case at Massa's. A couple weeks ago a guy blew up the shithouse and didn't have the courtesy to clean up after himself (and by blowing up the shithouse I mean I've never seen anything like it before--there was shit everywhere, even under the toilet seat. How is it even possible to get shit under the toilet seat if you're sitting on it?! Was it gravity defying shit? Did he use the seat to wipe his ass?! I realize I'm asking questions that will never be answered). Anyway, that stunt got him banned again (this was his second banning--he was previously banned for cadging cigarettes and asking other patrons for money).

caging cigarettes

What's that behavior? Is it how you hold your hand?

I could use the Urban Dictionary but I'd prefer your definition.

Far be it from me to respond on Mike's behalf, but I believe he was referring to "cadging."
I really don't appreciate your sarcastic, anti-comedy tone, Bro!

I think that clears it up, Buff.

Cadging means bumming, right?

You know how Lemmy got his nickname?

No, I didn't know. That's funny.

I try.

Even though I don't watch enough television.
