“The Sardine Bar is a very short walk away and is a great place to grab a drink or a bite, especially later at night. They've got a rotating cast of craft beers and some really creative sandwiches. When the weather is nice, we like to sit in their backyard for happy hour. The Sardine Ale and Kenzinger are our go-to for beers.”

“B&B's has been a South Street staple since 1969. Don't think about it, just order "a special". Show up on Friday and Saturday nights to hear familiar jazz standards and more on their Hammond B-3 Organ. ”

“Hawthornes is a 5-minute cab ride away and is a great brunch/dinner spot. The food is great, but what really makes Hawthornes stand out is the huge selection of beers. Nearly a dozen refrigerated cases are available to choose from. It's a great way to try something new or to enjoy an old favorite.”
