Western Bar & Cafe

Western Bar & Cafe - Sometimes you just don't want to pay $12 for a drink. On those nights, head out to Western Bar & Cafe, located at [Address]. And while they may be cheaper, they're definitely not weaker.
25 N Main St
Jordinelli's Cafe - You might see a celeb here. But he/she will probably be on one of the many flat screen TVs lining the walls. Jordinelli's Cafe is the place you'd likely go to to watch that big game but you'll probably have so much fun, you'll stick around longer.
Cats Bar & Grill

Cats Bar & Grill - There's not much to be said about the cocktails at [name]. They're not necessarily cheap, but they're as tasty as they are potent...a delicious and dangerous combination.
245 S Main St
Brighton Bar, located at [Address], has an atmosphere that's bordering on dive. Don't take a date there-unless she's cool as hell and is super low-maintenance-but it's a good place to chill and unwind. -Review of Brighton Bar

Gracy O'mally's Irish Pub - Maybe you'll see Norm in the corner. Or Cliff sitting next to him. Maybe Sam behind the bar. Yep, Gracy O'mally's Irish Pub is that comfortable, cozy neighborhood bar - the kind where the bartender seems to know everyone who walks through the door.
66 S Main St
Blue Moon - If you're looking to kick back, Blue Moon, located at [Address], is a safe bet. It's not the kind of place that's going to break your wallet, so that's more you have left over for happy hour.

Tio'slounge - If you're planning on wearing sneakers, hoodies or any other casual apparel, you should probably go to another lounge. Tio'slounge, located at [Address] prides itself on being selective at the door. So if you don't look good, you probably aren't getting in.
Stocking up your home bar
By Russ Cobbe
Last week we discussed what bartending equipment you should have in your home bar. This week we will cover the ingredients you need to complete the setup of your home bar.
Your main selection of alcohol should include 750ml bottles of the following: Gin, Vodka, Rum, Bourbon, Scotch, Tequila, Vermouth, Red and White Wine, Brandy, Port & Sherry plus whatever liqueurs are most palatable to you and your friends. The most popular liqueurs to have would be coffee, orange, irish cr�me and cr�me de cassis.
Next up would be bitters. Bitters are made from a variety of roots, barks, berries and herbs. They generally add a bit of zing to your drinks. You should have Angostura, Peychaud's, Orange and Abbotts Aged bitters.
For mixing you'll need a good variety to make a lot of different recipes. The standards include multiple bottles of Mineral water, cola, ginger ale, club soda, tonic water, lemon/lime sodas and fresh juices (orange, pineapple, lemon, lime and tomato). Don't forget to have lots of ice on hand. If you make your own ice use bottled water so you don't get a chlorine flavour to your drinks. Ice should go in the glass first to avoid splashing and to cool the ingredients as they get added.
Finally you will need some things to garnish the drinks to add that special touch. The essentials include cocktail onions, stuffed olives, lemons, limes, oranges, strawberries, celery stalks, Tabasco sauce, maraschino cherries, pineapple...
