CHS got an early look inside Auto Battery, the big sports bar little brother of E. Union’s Po Dog, as workers pull the place together for its debut later this week. Thursday night, Auto Battery and Po Dog host the Bounce on This pre-Pride party.
Auto Battery is “soon to open” with 10 large LCD television screens, a full bar, a couple Wii stations for your gaming pleasure and, for old schoolers, two shuffle puck boards in the back. Here’s how Po Dog founder Laura Olson described Auto Battery to us back in December:
Auto Battery is a hybrid News coffee shop and Sports bar (complete with shuffle board tables) It will be open 6am-2am. Feature free wi-fi and 14 televisions.
With the World Cup still in motion for weeks, looks like the Hill will have a prime viewing location added to its roster shortly.
And, yes, conflict of interest alert. Po Dog is a long-time CHS advertiser, the Bounce on This party is co-sponsored by another long-timer in Emerson Salon and two other Pike/Pine businesses we haven’t seen a dime from. What are you waiting for Babeland and Retail Therapy?
