    It’s worth it to come here for the pinball. Granted, it’s harder to be a wizard after a few Poison Girl shots, but it’s not rocket science. Had enough shots? Go for The Jones: ginger beer and bourbon.

    I love how they fail to mention that some of the beers on their cardboard lack alcohol... Oh and the redhead bartender is a douchebag.. use subtraction when tipping him on credit.
