“For a younger crowd, this is where the college kids go. This bar is great because in the back corner, there is shuffle board! I really don't know if that's the name, but whatever has blue and red 'pucks' and use your fingers to shuffle them and knock your opponent off the board to maintain position, and their brew list is very extensive.”
