Photos While-U-Wait, Shooting Gallery, Budweiser On Tap and Sandwiches. It's like Homer Simpson's favorite business ever.
But I'm an art lover, so what I see is like Walker Evans took this picture and mailed it to Edward Hopper for the scene just past the swinging half-doors, and he mailed it to Jasper Johns for the neon target over the door, and he mailed it to Warhol for the photobooth snaps, and then Chris Burden shows up to get shot, literally. Plus beer and sandwiches.
Eh, I get carried away. But I think it's a crazy concept, The Barn.

Come on in and shoot. Oh, and three times the Budweiser. It's America!ReplyDelete
Wow! They had leaping lions to shoot! No phony over the top advertising there. Great shot. Through those swinging doors a world of wonder.ReplyDelete
How better to relax than with continual gunfire?ReplyDelete
And nothing goes better in a confined space than guns and alcohol!ReplyDelete
