4830 NE 42nd Ave., 287-5800. 7 am-2:30 am daily.

Cully's best dive—hell, one of the entire city's best dives—is like a whiskey-soaked fever dream of a bar. Housed in a former bowling alley, the enormous place has the look of an off-the-strip Vegas decompression bar. The patrons are wildly disparate—from crotchety old-guard Cully video poker addicts to hipsters who came in out of curiosity and never left. At the bar, you can roll a die and get a corresponding mystery shot from a brown bag for $2.50 that is invariably amaretto or butterscotch. The stage is populated with musicians or, on the best nights, karaoke demigod Danny Chavez, who blows sax solos and is backed by silent sidekick Rockin' Raymond, who wears a sequined vest and dances with a Guitar Hero controller. If that's a sensory overload, kick back with some fried bar food or brave the prime rib dinner while shooting pool in a quieter room away from the action. But really, sensory overload is why you're here. And the overload is the stuff of legend.

Happy Hour: 3-6 pm daily. $2 wells, $1.25 draft Bud, $1.50 draft PBR.

Entertainment: Hot sax karaoke, pool, video games, video poker, live music, bingo, video poker.
