Uptowner bar owners share tales of the beautiful people

The Uptowner - aka "home of the beautiful people" - turns 130 this month and will celebrate with a free bash on Saturday, Sept. 20. Recently, we spent a Thursday afternoon listening to owner Steve Johnson's stories - as well as his wife Shawnette Smart's myriad tales. Some of the yarns were funny, some sad, some unfit to print, but all of them were told with the heart and wit that explain why the Uptowner has been frequented by so many people - from the uber glamorous to the down-and-out.

A sports Thanksgiving
It's the time of year when we all try to figure out what it is we are thankful for and sometimes it's hard to make a decision. But in the world of sports there are a lot of gifts that we get and we should hold hands and say thank you for players, teams and owners.

Iron Block Building
This year, Dental Associates completed its restoration of the Iron Block Building -- actually a pair of connected buildings dating from 1860 and 1899 -- and the work put a gorgeous new luster on one of Downtown's most aged landmarks.
