    The cheese, crab fries are excellent. And go well with a nice porter or stout.

    Be cool. Ur tight jeans and beards r trending nicely. Keep up the stereotype, Ur googling of micro brews and coffee is right on point. Stay soft and excusable my friends. Escape is still a plan...

    Known to most as the P.O.P.E., it's an unassuming corner joint with a truly rad beer selection. Avoid the tables if you can, but a seat at the bar is totally worth fighting for.
