Jan. 5--Have you heard the one where the meteorite comes through the ceiling and nearly hits a guy sitting at the bar?
Neither had the patrons of the Red Rock Lounge on the west side until Wednesday night, when they heard a huge boom around 11:30 p.m. and a 4-inch hole opened up in the roof.
"They thought they were being attacked," said Karol Sandvig, owner of the bar at 31st Street and West Colorado Avenue. She said there were about 15 to 20 people in the bar when the ceiling exploded, sending insulation wafting through the air.
