Place:Scruffy Murphy's Iri

Posted on Thu, Jun 9, 2005 at 4:00 AM

We've stopped counting how many **Orlando Weekly** 'meetingsâ?� have been held at the unofficial **Orlando Weekly** 'annex.â?� Scruffy's is a throwback to a time when downtown was a little seedier, a touch more dangerous and certainly less gentrified. We like that. Scarred wood on the floor, names carved into the tables, a bar staff with a collective brogue, it's all here. Add a great jukebox and some of the crispest Harp on tap anywhere in O-Town, and ding-ding-ding! You've got a winner. They know how to pour a proper pint, by gawd. Just don't piss off the bear.
