“I’ll give you my beer when you pry it from my cold, dead hands.” Flip one word and the famous Charlton Heston missive on guns becomes the battle cry for Lark on the Park, the new chic dining cavern by nightclub impresario Shannon Wynne.

It isn’t a coincidence the two have melded together. In fact, it’s almost serendipity.
