36 N Russell St., 287-2262, sloanstavern.com. 11 am-10 pm Monday-Thursday, 11 am-midnight Friday.
Plenty of ink has been given to certain contingents of this floral-carpeted truck-stop bar with a semi jutting from its outside wall—a place of $1.50 Pabst and one of the city’s best jukeboxes. There are the neighborhood lifers, the Blazers fans, the hip lesbians who meet for RuPaul’s Drag Race on Mondays, the lady metalheads who gather on Fridays. But don’t forget the goth-bingo aficionados, who assemble monthly to try their luck to the tune of Bauhaus and the Cure. On a recent night, the host lamented “the return of the hateful sun”—the arrival of daylight saving time—as attendees with neck tattoos got their tarot cards read. Welcome. REBECCA JACOBSON.
Happy Hour: 3-6 pm Monday-Friday. $3 wells, $3.25 micros, $2.25 domestics.
Entertainment: Goth bingo, Blazers games, jukebox, DJ nights.
