5 April 2014: Chuckie's?

Chuckie's (with its incongruous chandeliers) looking dark and deserted
on a bright and sunny Saturday afternoon.
Chuckie's on Morse Ave. is a little hole-in-the-wall bar with inexplicably huge chandeliers and very few customers (at least from what I've observed). I confess that the place is a puzzlement to me. I am always fascinated by the drama of places, and to me Chuckie's has an almost palpable air of … je ne sais quoi. If i were making a movie--a sinister neo-noir along the lines of Nicholas Winding Refn's Only God Forgives--i would set it at Chuckie's. And i would cast Ryan Gosling in the lead. 
Because Ryan Gosling.
