      Ninjas at Bullwackers
    by Ewingjr98

I've only been to Bullwackers a few times for the nightlife, so my review might be a little different than others... But this place had a live band and tons of old people out dancing like old people do. They have a nice outdoor bar and patio with several gas fires and an outdoor stage, all of which was very nice, but the bar was packed full of drunk old cougars and cowboys looking to rope a cougar. One lady was falling out of her dress as she fell off her stool, while two cowboys were fondling her up and down. Meanwhile, some kids are sitting nearby having dinner and watching intently. Not a place I'll frequent, and not a place you should take your kids after about 7pm.

I returned in May 2008 to see the Band of Ninjas play, and the crowd was much younger and more fun. Like the Mucky Duck downtown, the huge outdoor seating area is very popular and fun. Unlike the Mucky Duck, Bullwackers has bands at night instead of the late afternoon, so they can play until almost midnight.
