    No TVs, so you're forced to talk to other patrons. What a concept, I love it! If you don't feel like talking, grind on people in the crowded back dancefloor.

    This venue has seemingly deduced how to attract customers on a Tuesday: ① Price all draft beer @ $2.00; ② Have a DJ playing hip-shaking soul and funk music in the back room. ☻

    $2 drafts on Tuesday= Best Tipsy Tuesday ever! Back room has the best music in my opinion.

    Ok the $2 pints are insane, but on Thursday and Saturdays there are old school hip hop jams in the back room that will remind you of your days in those gnarly disgusting teen clubs...amazeballs

    Win a bunch of cash off your boy playing pool - then make it seem like you're doing him a favor when you buy drinks with his money.
