This group is for everyone that wants to find the interesting little neighborhood bars all around the city. Some of these more casual places have great jukeboxes, boardgames, and a different variety of drinks that are not had any place else. What better way to explore and find them than with a collective of searchers all over the city to share ideas for places and a common goal - good company and drinks.
