    That place has lots of character. Happy minute deal at 6&11 pm you get a token for 1 dollar and you can exchange it for the drink you have in front of you. Good for a chill out night or a lowkey night

    "It's Tucson's oldest bar, there by the railroad tracks since 1934, and ten bucks still gets you two pitchers of Coors."

    Make sure you are here for the happy minute!! 6:00 PM gets you a 2:1 you call it and 11:00 PM gets you a repeat of whatever you are drinking for $1. Only good for the minute so don't miss it.
