If you’re not sure why Stadium West changed its name to this, start your night at this often-desolate dive by asking owner “Sue”—you’ll get an earful. The self-appointed “Dragonlady” is a straight-shooter, with a sweet side that comes out when she plays den mother on Thursdays, cooking up vegan Korean fare for any scraggly twentysomething with $10 for the all-you-can-eat spread.
