Description: Vaguely upscale lodge-style eatery/drinkery in Ballard.

Decor: A wall display of exotic beer cans, two thrill-inducing Skee-Ball machines, and above the bar, the charmingly deformed stuffed bobcat that previously graced Linda's Tavern. (Linda owns this joint, too.)

Creepy basement lore: According to the bar manager, several years ago a man tumbled down the stairs and into a coma, which led to his death.

Happy hour: Daily 5–7 pm.

Happy-hour drink specials: $2.50 wells, $2 pints/$5.50 pitchers PBR, $2.50 pints/$7.50 pitchers Stella Artois and micros (the exceptionally lengthy selection includes Baron Pilsner, Hale's Kölsch, and New Belgium 2 Degrees Below).

Happy-hour food specials: $4.50 for three sliders, which come topped with special sauce, onions, and pickles.
