6. Sister Louisa’s Church of the Living Room & Ping Pong Emporium


Grant Henry is many things—former seminary student, proud father, civic developer, folk artist—yet somehow all of these roles coalesce magically at his bar. The wall space is covered with iconography: some of it funny, some of it offensive, all of it compelling, like a series of car accidents you can’t turn away from. (Is that really a baby crawling up a cross under a sign that says “Ladder of Success”?)
