ROGERS PARK — Cunneen's Bar is commemorating the anniversary of its collapsed ceiling — which came crashing down a year ago Tuesday — by offering patrons $3 pints.
"One year ago today the ceiling literally fell on our heads at Cunneen's," said a post on the bar's Facebook page. "We were so grateful that no one was injured that day that today we want to commemorate that good luck."
The bar's drop ceiling lived up to its name Jan. 28, 2013, putting the bar, at 1424 W. Devon Ave., out of commission for 29 days and leaving regulars without their watering hole.
Bartender Janet Pratt was one of four people inside when the ceiling fell in. They all made it out unharmed.
Those sitting at the bar — including owner Stephen Cunneen — bolted out the front door and Pratt dove under her beer taps.
The bar is known for its 50 cents-a-game pool table, antique phone booth and glowing Richard J. Daley clock above the bar.
All pints, including Berghoff Lager, Berghoff Dark, Sierra Nevada and Bass, will be $3 for the rest of the day.
"We may be just a little watering hole on one small corner of East Rogers Park," the bar continued on Facebook, "but we are very happy to still be here with all of you who make us possible."
