Further evidence that the artists have long since surrendered the L.E.S. to the jocks: the transformation of the Annex to the Doghouse. Of course, this might not have happened if the Annex hadn't been one of the worst music venues in the city, but we digress. The current tenant is something of a sports bar / arcade / dance club / beer pong haven, which means they sure can't be accused of, well, dogging it. Expect all you can guzzle specials during pretty much any major game, not to mention ten TVs to watch them on. Hell, even the slow nights have a shitck (think Margarita Mondays and Bikini Sundays). And where the Annex's upstairs was formerly a haven for CMJ badge-wearing shmucks, Doghousers enjoy a game room with classics like skee-ball and Big Buck Hunter. This place is even a doghouse in the culinary sense, as franks are served until 4 AM every night. Yes, it does make us a little sad that the LES is increasingly becoming a destination for the “Bud and Buck Hunter" set, but at least the Doghouse is a decent place to unleash your inner frat boy.
