NePo 42 seems intent on one thing: doing typical bar fare and entertainment exceedingly well. So well, indeed, that it can be a perfect compromise bar for groups with divergent bar interests. It's got smoked wings and a large TV for game nights, a full menu and Sunday brunch for family meals out and a rotating list of draft beers and free pool for drinking nights. The main drawback, which is barely a complaint, is the tiny parking lot. Park on one of the side streets and walk over. JASON SLOTKIN.
What to drink: Any of the rotating draft beers.
Happy hour: $3 wells, $3.50 draft beers, $2 Old Germans, food specials 3-6 pm Monday-Friday and 3 pm to close Sunday.
Entertainment: Pool, open-mic nights, Sunday brunch.
