INW Lands 2 On Best College Bar List

Two Inland Northwest bars -- Jack & Dan's in Spokane at No. 3 and The Corner Club in Moscow @ No. 5 -- are include on the Top 20 list of Best Online Colleges Legendary College Bars. Here's what's said about The Corner Club:

The Corner Club in Moscow, Idaho, a small chapel in its former life, is famous for its stories of amazing feats performed at the bar. The most well-known of these involves Gus Johnson, an Idaho Vandals basketball star. It’s said that Johnson already had a reputation as a high jumper, and was asked to show off his skills at the bar. From a standing start, Johnson touched a spot on a beam that was more than 11 feet above the ground. This spot was marked with a nail, and since then, the bar has advertised that anyone who could do the same would drink for free. Only one has been able to do it since then: Joey Johnson, who grabbed and bent the legendary nail. A run down on the Top 20 bars here. (Photo from Corner Club Web site)

Question: Can anyone offer insights on either Jack & Dan's or The Corner Club?
