Maybe the Ratmobile is just taking up too much of John Dougherty’s time*? Or maybe it was all the PLCB violations the place racked up.
The place is big, more than 2,500 square feet, and it has a second-floor deck, a prime opportunity for something much, much better to swoop in. Meanwhile, the bar is still open for dinner every night, Damis said.
On a relatively related note, how about this picture from Doc’s Facebook page?
Yes, that is James Franco posing with some folks at Doc’s in a picture posted to the bar’s Facebook page in 2009. How the hell did that happen?
Anyway, thanks to the talented Liz Spikol at Philly mag’s new Property blog for tipping us off to this one.
* And actually, Dougherty apparently was more of a silent partner in the venture (despite his name being in the bar’s name), but whatever. We just wanted an excuse to mention the Ratmobile.
