Named for a 1961 Paul Newman–Sidney Poitier movie, this local dive decorated with sports trophies and Christmas lights draws a crowd seeking simple pleasures. Plug Nat King Cole or En Vogue into the jukebox, and consider an early (noonish) Saturday and Sunday drink—before the free soul-food snacks are history.
