    Friendly folks and awesome atmosphere. Try the Firestone Double Barrel Ale: It's like Fat Tire, only even better for cooling off on a muggy day.

    women love the board/children's games, so there's an excellent girl:guy ratio - however, the table:people ratio isn't as good... get here early to score a table for the night :)
