    They require two forms of ID to get in the bar if you have an out of state ID. A debt card will do.

    Loud music, incessant dancing, and a bevy of hipsters - I should hate The Model. But, it's all amazingly infectious. Basically, I've never had a bad time at The Model.

    Arrive before 11:30 or you'll be suffering in the most arbitrary line. Remember it's a cash bar and tipping well drastically cuts the time you hold an empty glass.

    Good place to start a band. We formed here, and now you can listen to our "Primetime" album in the jukebox!

    When you're almost out of money in life, bring the last of it you have here, drink it away and burn the last dollar in the Mens' room.

    This place is cash only, but they have an ATM inside. Get here early to avoid the line outside. Great, eclectic crowd and good tunes. Dance parties may spontaneously erupt. Good times!

    2.50 for a generous glass of PBR, the owner is a gentlemen, and dancing will happen if you come with a group who is willing to dance.

    Go to The Model Cafe. Play Addams Family pinball. When you lose take 2 coasters and put them under the front legs. Repeat until you do better.
