Forest green booths line one wall and a smattering of Betty Boop memorabilia (gifts from owner Bette Barlotta's regulars) collect dust behind the bar at Tee Gee, but everybody's favorite visual element has to be its crusty lime green ceiling complete with gold glitter specks. Ceramic lamps, brown wood paneling and newspaper clippings chronicling the bar's past complete the granny's living room feel of this old bar, which is often pretty empty thanks to its rear entrance and misleading, restaurant looking neon sign. Sports on the tube, classic rock on the juke, older locals on the stools and outsider-ish cliques filling up the booths, seem par for the course here. Even with Atwater's influx of cute cafes and boutiques, there's something about Tee Gee that'll just never be tren-dee.
