This is my bar. There are many like it, but this one is mine. It is enormous. It is rarely crowded, and when it is, the crowd is friendly. It has a mural on the front, and couches inside. The pool and foosball are free, though the tables are worn. There is art on the walls. There is a pizza oven that turns out very good pizza. You can buy a 10-inch pie and a pint for $10 from 3 to 6 pm. Sandwiches are also an option. Monday is heavy-metal night. There is no cover. The jukebox is full of art, instead of album covers, so you have to look up your song in a binder. The music is good. The beer is excellent—Ninkasi, Firestone Walker, Everybody’s Brewing, Fort George. It is, in short, like every other bar, and it is perfect. BEN WATERHOUSE.
