The troubled children of Cabbagetown work and drink at this dingy urban roadhouse, along with their friends and hard-drinkin' country cousins. This is a twisted reality, like "Paradise Hotel," except without the attractive people or locale. Hang around the bar at CRAZY HORSE BAR & GRILL
and hear cheerful tales of unwed mothers, abusive husbands and latch-key children. The bartender might not be able to get your drink until she finishes consoling the customer in front of you whose boyfriend took off. "We're like family here, we take of each other," she explains. This family might be a little too tight-knit.
