    Happy Hour!!!! Drinks and fantastic apps make me happy, but when they're half price I'm even happier! I wasn't a fan of the buffalo tenders, but was a fan of the hummus, spicy shrimp, & fried pickles

    Place is using the Obama-backed Dodd-Frank regulation to have a $10 credit card minimum now. What a terrible policy for consumers. Other bars in Manchester are better.

    Deals, beers and food are super good. Good Luck getting the bartenders to crack a smile or make eye contact. and expect to feel like you're inconveniencing them.

    Tuesdays are f**king dangerous in the most wonderful way. First, pad your stomach with half price apps, then bomb down a bunch of top shelf 3 dollar shots, and chase them with one of many $2 drafts

    This place is a shithole. The only thing keeping it in business are the cheap drink specials and they are going away quickly. They used up have a good beer list but never have any in stock.
