Meet the Mayor: Silhouette Lounge

Welcome to "Meet the Mayor," a segment in which we interview local Foursquare Mayors in their natural habitats.

Silhouette Lounge
Mercer Smith

How long have you been coming to the Sil?
Four months. I had just moved here, and I didn't know anybody. Someone told me this was a good place to meet people. Now I have friends here.

You've found that this, indeed, is a good place to meet people?
It's a good place to meet people. It's also a bad place to meet people, 'cause sometimes those good people turn out to be not so good.

Hmm. So, why doesn't every bar serve free popcorn?
Because they suck. There are a lot of places that serve snacks, but the popcorn here is awesome.

Why doesn't every business serve free popcorn?
Again, because they suck. That would be my definitive answer to that question.

You're not a fan of things that suck?
No, I do not like things that suck. I don't think anybody does.

Since I walked in, they've played glam metal and Justin Timberlake, and now I'm hearing White Zombie . . .
You never know what you're going to hear or who's going to play what. On Fridays and Saturdays, a bunch of people from Guatemala play Guatemalan music and dance while they're playing pool. It's pretty neat.
