    Tuesday night trivia is the best. They've recently upped the spice on the deviled eggs, so beware.

    If you like beer, this place is great. If you like being served beer, or service in general, eh...not so much. 10 visits so far, and every bartender would rather lick razors than actually pour a beer.

    Avoid the after 10 PM crowd on Fridays and the weekend—noisy and crowded. Show up closer to 7 PM and enjoy a much more relaxed atmosphere where it's easier to talk.
