Slurp & Burp?

While driving to Galena, Illinois last fall we ended up on a detour that took us up and down rolling hills on a narrow county highway not labeled anything on the map. As we descended one hill this pretty little church lay out in front of us, which happened to be at a "Y" in the road and the gateway to this little country town.

While the little church was a neat front door feature, and this ancient stone house added a certain ambiance to this town of, oh, I suppose.....20 souls, it was their local watering hole that really caught our attention.

The Slurp & Burp. Probably one of the best named bars I've ever seen, now taking the place of the Sas & Pas in New Harmony. So here's my question to you out there.....what are some crazy bar names you've run across?

It looks like the Slurp and Burp is housed in a former church...it should get extra points for that.

When I was a boy, my grandparents used to take us to this place called the Inn Between, which was in between Dowagiac and Cassopolis on M-62.

There is an Inn Between near La Grange Lake halfway between Cass and Dogpatch....wonder if it is the same one you remember

Natalie-
I'd like to think it was a little schoolhouse, but I doubt it. I can't think of any other churches-turned bar, with maybe the exception of a baptist church in Rochester their VFW.
