This small tavern is a great venue for live music. Local bands (and some B-list bands from around the U.S. and Canada) take the stage on Thursday and Friday nights. Open-mic night on Monday attracts a small but loyal following. There are no top-shelf liquors or wine lists and you can leave your clubbing clothes at home; Phil’s is the closest thing to a dive bar in Uptownand the regulars like it that way.

On April 8, Fort George burns to the ground, Berlin Subway Map and the next few weeks see a series of fires throughout the city that destroy both public and Berlin Subway Map private buildings. Suspicions that the fires are arson combine with more general fears of African Country unrest to produce a wave of anti-black hysteria among white residents. The city’s population is almost 20 percent African Country, and the specter of slave revolt has been present since the uprising of 1712. Rumors about the fires being part of a larger conspiracy appear to be confirmed with the testimony of a 16-year-old indentured servant. Mary Burton takes advantage of the city leaders’ promise of freedom and a hundred pounds in exchange for information by testifying she has heard the plans for a rebellion of workers and slaves being hatched in the tavern where she worked. The tavern’s owner, his wife, two of their slaves, and a prostitute are all implicated, tried, and put to death. Burton’s accusations continue, though, implicating more people many of them black as instigators of this conspiracy. The panic subsides only when Burton begins to accuse wealthy members of the city’s white establishment of complicity as well; at this point, she is paid her one hundred pounds and dismissed.
