Trolley House Take over

OK, there is a new (clean looking!) bar in the Heights across from Supremo on Franklin and Palisade.
Trolley House. I propose a night out to show support for a new business, get out of the house without kids (if ya got 'em) and see our Heights friends and neighbors for a drink.

Lets try this place out and if we like it, make this a monthly event!
