After all these years, Grumpy's Bar & Grill manages to strike the right balance between downtown staple and low-key neighborhood bar. It's got comedy, bingo, and live-band karaoke, all wrapped in a kind of punk-rock cocktail lounge aesthetic. And on a weekend night, while burly dudes rub elbows with the suits, it's still possible to grab one of three black-felted pool tables. The suburban halls may be grandiose, but Grumpy's remains the best place for city slickers who don't have the time or resources to make a pilgrimage. Plus there's plenty of room to set up shots, no one looking over your shoulder, and no pausing to let the smokers go by. Did we mention games cost only $1.50? Save the rest of your cash for beer and deep-fried mac 'n'cheese bites.
