For its great shows, nightly specials and impressive pinball-machine selection, the Replay (also affectionately known as "the Pre-lay") has long been one of Lawrence's best hangouts. This year, however, the ante has been upped. First came the renovations to the beer garden, which has not only increased the outdoor capacity (oh, so necessary for a smoker in this nonsmoking town) but also shielded bargoers from the rain with wraparound awnings. Then came March's tornado, which blew out the building's front windows and scattered debris inside. Another bar might have called it a day, but the Replay's ultra-faithful bartenders and regulars showed up, hangovers be damned, to begin cleanup that same Sunday morning, allowing the bar to open for that night's show. Now there's love.
