    Don't be a chump & order a Bud. Try one of the 5 "Coney Island" beers instead! Delicious and unique.

    Seriously, the $10 you spend on an "Albino Python" is totally worth it.

    The bar is outstanding and if you go to the sideshow performance you can bring your booze in. How "freak"ing cool is that?

    Whatever cider it is they sell is ridiculously sweet so if you like your ciders bitter(like me) I'd avoid it.
