The Low Down


Save Money: Nightly drink specials (except Friday and Saturday) include $3 "you call its" (shots, bottles, drafts--anything) on Sundays and $2 draft beers every Monday.

Save Time: The bar's cash-only, but don't worry about stopping at the bank--there's an ATM inside.

Know Before You Go: This is a gathering spot for Pittsburgh Steelers, Purdue Boilermakers and Sharks (Aussie Rules football team) devotees, so crowds form when games are on. Pittsburghians can get a bottle of genuine Iron City Beer.
