The Low Down

EDITORS TIPS

Save Money: On Tuesdays, most beers--domestic and import, draft and bottled--are just $2.50

Where to Sit: The rooftop deck is a great place to hang out--but don't expect quiet, as trucks frequently rumble by on Ogden Avenue.

Know Before You Go: Though the Spoke gets rowdy in the evenings, it hosts a family-friendly crowd at weekend brunch and lunch.

The Extras: Saturdays at midnight, it's "Smut 'n Eggs," featuring the breakfast menu and bad '70s porn.
