When Pork Slope, a “Brooklyn roadhouse bar” from the owners of Talde, opens late next week, it’ll coincide with Patrick Swayze’s birthday. But the connections to Road House will probably end there: “It is a complete joke that has gotten out of hand,” says co-owner John Bush. “I can’t reiterate enough that we’re not trying to open up the Double Deuce.” At the super-casual, cash-only spot, there will be 25 beers plus three wines on tap, and a spirits program focusing on American whiskey.
