#3 W.

Rawb says:
I do believe that this bar gets the award for shortest name, were there such an award to be handed out. This place is small, loud and very dancy. They claim to be an “indie-club” and were playing some sort of techno/dance music to which my friends informed me was not just one song.

Marv Says:  A fun little bar that often sees the roller derby crowd as well as the occasional no name DJ.  A 2×4 setup was going on when we visited.  They have a decent selection of libations, so you should be covered.  I ran into the owners of Toaster’s Deli (which is right by my office) there and had shots with them. http://www.toastersdeli.com/ I enjoyed my Pilsner Urquell and Knob Creek.

#2 – Bliss

Rawb Says:
While dance clubs aren’t typically my thing strangely enough dance clubs on gay night turn out to also not be my thing. In a desperate attempt to wake up I managed to squeeze up to the bar and ordered an overpriced vodka and redbull (are you sensing a trend?). Feeling slightly defeated that no one there bought me a drink, I turned tail and headed out soon enough.

Marv Says:

Saturday nights are Gay Night at Bliss.  The cover charge was reasonable at $5.  Seems to be pretty common to have that charge at dance clubs.  I got a quick Vodka and Redbull and had to leave nearly immediately to escort Lacey from the hotel party she was attending to our next venue.  The building is the old Vortex/Splash/The Bay, so don’t expect a lot.  Still a great building, and still no good tenants.  Expect a young crowd any time you visit.

#1 – Squatters

Marv Says:

A great local microbrewery that has some of the more exciting local brews.  I enjoyed my Emmigration Ale that was cask conditioned.  The bartender was a great guy and kept us well served.  A fellow patron bled at us as he was the recent recipient of a new tattoo.   Good times.

Rawb Says:

Typically someplace I would go for dinner so it’s not the regular bar food. While I went against the grain and got a vodka and redbull, I very much made the wrong decision considering that this place is a brewery and typically has at least one cask conditioned ale on tap. (More to be added later)
