I've always noticed the Dirty Duck Bar 's large displaying a cheerful, drunken duck on my way down Evans Avenue toward the I on-ramps. Each time I drive by, I tell myself that I need to check the place out.
I finally ventured in on a recent Sunday with a friend who has lived in the Virginia Village neighborhood for years but hadn't been to the bar before, either. Based on the name, and based on the fact that some people I asked about the bar alluded to it being sketchy, I was expecting a grungy dive bar.

What I found was less divey and more friendly than I expected. When we arrived, things were calm. The bar hosted a line of regulars chatting together, and there was one guy sharing a pitcher of beer with himself at one of the booths. The interior of the bar isn't fancy, by any means, but everything looks clean and reasonably well maintained. Shelves near the ceiling hold an impressive collection of rubber duckies, which bartender Curtis King later told me have all been brought in as gifts by customers.
We wandered over to check out a side room with arcade games and pool tables, but it was empty on this particular day, with patrons sticking close to the bar area. Rubber duckie, you're the one!
