Last time at bar was May 5--- first trivia night after Vern's passing. Everything really nice. Cold beer, friendly vibe, great hamburgers-- you feel at home here. Nice weather and the patio is great, shaded by huge sycamore trees. I love this place.

Their quirky Thursday night trivia is a magnet for RICE grad students and Retired news anchors--- you can wind fairly good money considering how crowded it is--and the included munchies are great! Go for the burgers--plus the onion rings!
