There's a clear attempt to elevate this sleek cedar-paneled space beyond its beer-stained, royal blue neighbors while still honoring that baseball team a block away. Glossy flat-screens, scantily clad servers and a continuous mix of Counting Crowsish tunes aren't rare in these parts, but specialty drinks like the whiskey-based Knickerbocker served in mason jars and stoner-creative pub grub like fried macaroni-and-cheese balls and a Twinkie truffle add some distinction.
