“Looking for a fine crafted cocktail, entertainment and upscale pub eats? The Raven has you covered. Tuesday and Thursday trivia is not to be missed, Wednesday night cools down with some live Jazz and the weekends heat up with bands, and an epic 'house party' for those inclined to dance every Saturday evening.”

“Best pizza in town and oh-so-much more. Try the Funghi or keep it simple with the Pepperoni and you can't go wrong. Pro tip: split the Arugula Nachos, a twist on the classic using pasta chips - you won't regret it!”
