This big neighborhood bar, off the beaten path, gets an artsy crowd and other times draws jocks. The jukebox is stocked with Johnny Cash, Frank Sinatra, the Jam and the Beastie Boys. And the back wall is covered with artwork. Two big, sports-filled TV screens show the game, and the shelves are packed with crockery. Something for everyone.
