Tuscaloosa Alabama is growing rapidly. In a lot of ways, all of this growth and progress is a good thing. But it also seems to be coming at the expense of the city’s character. Most of our favorite old dives, record stores, and hangouts have been replaced with overpriced beige and red brick apartment complexes and Chipotle’s. For many locals, the last holdout for original music and for the town’s more colorful personalities was an eye sore of a dive bar named Egan’s. Now, for the first time in almost 40 years, this small smokey watering hole is under new ownership and the doors are currently closed while changes are made in management.
In the coming weeks, we'll be releasing several episodes worth of this Alabama dive bar's foul mouthed patrons recounting their favorite poop stories, reliving long nights of raunchy sex and eardrum busting music, and lamenting the passing of an era.
