    Went here with a friend after a concert and blew my mind. Matt is a ninja behind the bar and all the single ladies are ready to party with you. The live band also played Led Zeppelin by drunk request.

    Maybe all the people who are trying to get in each others' pants should be quiet while musicians are playing. Hit on each other between sets. Besides, it's probably a bad idea anyway.
