This tiny Lower East Side dive is a hot-dog shack by day and a performance-art beer bar by night. On the daytime menu are zany tube steaks like the Italiano (all-beef frank with melted mozzarella, roasted red peppers and pesto sauce) and the Teriyakimoto (chicken-apple dog with chopped onions and teriyaki sauce). Come evening, comedians, contortionists and live bands take the stage in back. In between rounds of X-rated Pictionary on a chalkboard wall, hit the bar for all-American craft beers like Flying Dog Raging Bitch IPA, Rogue Dead Guy Ale and Lionshead Pilsner.
