The Snug

Nice local bar. It had just the right amount of people when we went. There is a dart board, should that interest you. Just don't get too drunk and forget to give back the darts and get your license, like we did.
I think this place stands out for the clean bathrooms and 11oclock happy hour. There was one guy standing around whose job it was to make sure the bathrooms were spotless. Much better than having an annoying bathroom attendant who hands you a towel and expects a tip.
They also have there own Snug beer on tap which was pretty good but way way more expensive than Rudy's brew. I was still impressed by this bar and think it is a spot worth returning to over some of the other bars in the area.

Excellent Pork Chop House

Located on tiny doyers street, this would be a really hard place to just stumble upon.
When I have ordered to-go, my food was handed over to me promptly.
The pork chop, packaged questionably in a small brown brag that ended up soaked in grease, was in fact excellent though it doesn't look like it would be. The wontons in spicy oil were so flavorful and texturally pleasing. they definitely seemed freshly home made. It was just 6 dollars for what I ordered. Have done the repeat visit to this spot.
