    Their bar is busting at the seams even after the weather is inappropriate for sitting outside. What is their secret? I like the place, but not enough to wait in a long line. I am curious to hear what the fans say.

      Pheromones. RTC is teeming with highly educated, well-paid professionals aged 30-45 and Jacksons is a good place to mix. It’s like Arlington for randy grown-ups.
