Firing up a winner

A Halligan fan for years, I regularly patronized the Shockoe Bottom location before the roomier Short Pump site opened. Call me cornball, but I am a sucker for the decor – dominated by a fire engine with beer taps extending from the sides – as well as the story behind it.

Owner Shawn Gregory, a retired Henrico firefighter, outfitted the Halligan West location with a 1967 fire truck that his own father rode in his early career at the Highland Springs station.

Among other firefighter memorabilia incorporated into the theme are buckets and firefighter helmets suspended from the ceiling to serve as lamps, and fire hoses wound into the railing of the patio. The walls are covered with tools, photos, badges, and memorabilia from fire companies around the country, and Gregory rents a small "VIP" party deck on top of the fire engine and donates proceeds to charity, including a burn foundation.

Penguin power

Welcome to the latest trend in animated movies: the “sidekick/henchman/character who sits mostly in the background” spin-off.

The penguins of Madagascar were a laugh riot, so we’ve been given The Penguins of Madagascar. Same goes for the gibbery yellow minions of Despicable Me; thus, Minions is a part of next summer’s movie crop. Last year’s Free Birds introduced a very Minion-esque squad of men in boxy yellow hazmat suits, and had Free Birds not been such a dud, Boxy Yellow Hazmat Men would no doubt be headed to a theater near you.

Is Penguins a blatant tug at the wallets of everyone who saw Madagascar? Yeah, probably.
