Hell's Kitchen Westies

Rumor has it that back in the day the notorious Irish mobsters the Westies chopped and diced more than one body in the back room of Rudy's Bar & Grill. If only the pig could talk.

I m sure the pig has a lot to say.
He could see all those going in and not coming out.
Great night shot.

Great photo and Hells Kitchen lore. Hope it wasn't Rudy who got whacked.

And, er, uhm, uh, . . . Rudy's has the best dirty water dogs in town.

Rudy's has always been a microcosm of the City, from Ragz to Tuxz . . .

o'course its been looking a little more like KEG 101 lately.

the ole Juke ain't what she used to be, but still a stop on the annual circuit, for ole times sake.

p.s. always thought of Rudy's as Ruby's (Coney Island) city cousin.

p.s. s. LOVE the flaky paint on your last post. wonderful texture. always enjoy your work.


Birdman said...

Rudy's seems quite ruby. After your story, the coloring is symbolic as hell.

Love the sign and the red glow of the 'hood.

I am a glutton for images like this. It does not boar, but makes me squeal!

altadenahiker said...

Oh damn, I was going to say that pig don't squeal, but this Ken character is spilling everything.

Kitty said...

oh who doesn't love Rudys? The free hot dogs, the condom machines at the bathrooms?

Such a Hell's Kitchen staple.

Curlykale said...

I'll bet that piggie told some whopping 'pork pies'


The Photo Huntress said...

I love red in the photo... it kind of fits with whole history of the place. Or do I just have a vivid imagination. lol

Jean Spitzer said...

Love the way you composed this.

Goggla said...

Rudy's is the best...I have never NOT come out of there drunk, lol.
