    The Irish breakfast is super yummy, get a side of cheese grits if the meal doesn't come with one

    Bartender is racist. He blames his bad skills on my ethnicity. That's simply not acceptable.

    I always wind up getting Your Basic Breakfast and it never fails to be awesome. The Poached Eggs look amazing and one of these times I'll get 'em... Best brunch in the area and best Bloody Marys.

    Good for live music almost every night of the week. Go on Sunday for brunch and order the "world's best" bloody mary.

    An original dive that's not too dive-y. No stage, but an area next to the bar hosts some of the best live music you'll find. Treat Her Right (pre-Morphine) filmed a video here (I Think She Likes Me).

    Get an Old Fashioned! You'll feel like Don Draper, and enjoy it more than getting one anywhere else.

    Sunday nights the Plough hosts Frank Morey at 9. Many local musicians will sit in for a set or a song and stay for the night. Easily the best local music night in the city. RIYL Tom Waits, blues.
