    Clearly a top choice in Salem for beer lovers. Cask is often available. There serious about their live music too. Just look up at the ceiling.

    Gulu Gulu is located in Salem, so not too far from Endicott's campus. This is an awesome place for studying and getting great food and AWESOME nitro coffee!

    On Wednesday nights, because of open mic night, table service ends before 7. All food has to be ordered from the bar, and the line gets incredibly long. Avoid on Wednesdays unless you love open mic.

    Forget the Witch Trial sideshow and make a beeline for Gulu-Gulu Cafe. The Meat and Cheese Coalition is amazing and the cafe has an awesome Beer selection.

    Do not try the French Kiss the name is very misleading,you won't want this in your mouth for 1 second The Black Death is more appropriate name for it.

    Show up to be alone with your computer; it doesn't really happen that way. Lots of activities, lattes, conversation, shows, film and over all hi-jinx. Someone named his secure WiFi "Hipsters Suck."
