The Low Down


On the Menu: During winter the bar offers up two types of cheese to snack on.

Save Money: The jukebox selections are only 25 cents each, so play away.

The Extras: Check out the quirky message wall, which reads like a personals page joke. Ask the bartender for a slip of paper and pen and join the fray.

When to Go: Happy hour runs from 6pm to 8pm daily, with $1 off everything. If you like mind games, stop by on Sunday at 4pm for Scrabble.
