The Infamous Dr. Thunder paints a mural on the back door of Who’s Bar in Superior

Erik Pearson put down the gray base today for a mural over Who’s Bar’s back door. You wouldn’t believe how frequently used that door is, and how ignored the sign on the inside instructing people to knock before exiting went. Fortunately, Pearson’s quick hands managed to prevent any disasters.

Last week he painted the mural below, which is the back door of an unoccupied space between Who’s Bar and the Palace Bar. Go Dr. Thunder! Go!

This is one of those rare instances where an awesome idea is brought to life properly.  Who'd of thunk that it would happen in Superior of all places.  I'm so glad to see the good doctor's genius adorning the back alleys of sup town.

How does one get ahold of Dr. Thunder?  I have a customer who is interested in having some work done.

You can make it idiot-proof, but somebody will always make a better idiot.  I love the work; makes me want to paint the door to my apartment.

Why do people have to knock before leaving? If they're ignoring the sign, it's because most people don't expect to read anything other than "Emergency Exit" on it.

People have to knock before leaving so they don't barrel into an artist painting the door.  I can't believe they didn't just lock the door during the painting.  The reason they're doing this is because soon the front door won't be usable so it shouldn't be that big a thing to have the back door unusable for a week during the daylight hours.

If they locked the back door during business hours the fire marshal would have a heart attack on the spot and die.

I'm sure when Tower Avenue is under construction the front doors to businesses will still be open. Most people will use the back doors, though, because that's where they'll be able to park.

Tower Avenue reconstruction (wider streets, narrower sidewalks, tree-lined median, infrastructure improvements, etc.) is supposed to take four years.

This makes me want to go to Who's Bar.
