North Side bar abides, thas a nice ring to it by OLIVIER J. BOURGOIN

f you’re a fan of White Russian cocktails and the 1998 cult movie “The Big Lebowski,” you have double reasons to rejoice.

The Ringer Pub, a new bar at 2826 Thousand Oaks Drive inspired by the Coen Brothers’ humorous crime and bowling film, announced a mid-November opening. White Russians, the preferred drink of slacker protagonist The Dude, played by Jeff Bridges, will be on special every day, always. Patrons can also find a dozen carefully selected beers on draft, an additional offering of individual bottles and the same level of quality service found at the other two bars operated by the trio of Doug Ackerly, Matt Rapp and William Huey. Their ownership group, SATX Bars, has

already cut its management teeth on the bar scene with The Three Legged Monkey, 2313 N.W. Military Highway and more recently The Hangar Bar & Grill, 8203 Broadway north of Alamo Heights. Huey also has ownership interest in restaurants Hung Fong and Ding How, with another on the way.

there is a custom-built bowling lane, as well as a central bar, a seating area with tables and an outdoor patio. “We plan on opening a couple more locations within the next year or so,” Ackerly said. “Several more under SATX Bars.” Hours are 2 p.m. to 2 a.m. daily, but during football season patrons could find the bar open at noon on Saturdays and Sundays. The Ringer Pub offers up many nods to 1998's cult favorite neo-noir film 'The Big Lebowski' (left). Manager Erin Sullivan (above) prepares a White Russian, the protagonist's favorite cocktail. It typically is served with vodka, coffee liqueur and a splash of milk or cream, Photos by Collette Orquiz
