"Flaming Moe's" vs "Flaming Moe" w/ T. Cole Newton
Better late than never, right?! This episode, owner of the New Orleans bars Twelve Mile Limit and The Domino, T. Cole Newton, comes on to discuss season 3's "Flaming Moe's" and breaking from tradition I manually selected the modern episode -- season 22's "Flaming Moe" wherein Moe and Smithers turn the bar into a gay bar. I thought since Cole owns two bars, let's talk about two bar makeover episodes. We also discuss some other classic Simpsons episodes and tropes, what it's like owning a bar not only under normal circumstances, but also under these new "unprecedented times". When bars reopen, give The Domino and Twelve Mile Limit a visit.
