Tuesday, Oct. 16 marks the debut of Fountain Porter, the corner bar replacing 1601 at 1601 S. 10th St.(10th and Tasker).

It's a partnership of Evan Clancy and Scott Pawlicky, who tended bar at the Kite & Key in Franklintown.

Clancy describes his wood-clad joint as an old-school corner bar with 20 drafts, affordable wine, indoor picnic tables, and a menu of meat and cheese plates - "nothing pretentious."
