Last week we heard the rumor that a new McHale's bar was coming back from the vanished. A tipster spoke to the owner who claimed he'd bought the name and that Jimmy McHale himself would be there once a week, along with the chef from the former McHale's.
Then we learned, from someone who spoke to Jimmy, that Mr. McHale has nothing to do with the new McHale's, which is coming from the owners of Playwright's Tavern.
Now Fat Al sends in a shot of the place:
The name might be the same, but the feeling?
The Real McHale's?
