Fountain Porter opening Tuesday

By "simple": This is the rear seating at Fountain Porter at 10th and Tasker.

Tuesday, Oct. 16 marks the debut of Fountain Porter, the corner bar replacing 1601 at 1601 S. 10th St.(10th and Tasker).

It's a partnership of Evan Clancy and Scott Pawlicky, who tended bar at the Kite & Key in Franklintown.

Clancy describes his wood-clad joint as an old-school corner bar with 20 drafts, affordable wine, indoor picnic tables, and a menu of meat and cheese plates - "nothing pretentious."
