Let's be real - the only reason I go to this place is because (1) it had a fantastic patio and (2) it is directly behind my office building. Still, it's not bad if you're in the mood for beer and bar food. The crinkle fries are perfectly salty and crisp, corn dog bites are delicious little nuggets of yum, the chicken fingers are large, hot, and come with delicious honey mustard. There's a decent selection of beer on draft (Peroni!), and last time I ordered some fruity martini and was actually impressed with its tartness - not bad. I've also done many, many Irish car bombs at this joint. Three stars because I am not a fan of this joint as a lunch spot - most of the menu is just too heavy (read: fried) for lunch unless you want to snooze your way through the afternoon back at the office, and I'm not a fan of the salad selections. Apparently they are revising their menu for the summer, so I'll have to check it out, but I'm thrilled that we're getting some new lunch spots on Crescent (check out Noon Midtown!).

Suede, let's have a chat. Cover charge??? Guest list??? On a normal Saturday night there were far more people wandering the club, checking to see who was important and who wasn't than people actually dancing and having a good time. Good point: bar accesibility. Since they have about 6 statioins serving drinks, getting some booze was a no-brainer. Bad point: one drink of weak bourbon and ginger ale in a teensy little glass that tasted more of ginger ale than bourbon sets a person back $7.50. Fortunately, my friend and I wandered into a random birthday party that was having bottle service, so I only actually made a one drink purchase. There is plenty of room to dance perhaps because the pretense scares away real boogiers. I had a great time large in part due to the random birthday I encountered, but I don't think I'll be heading back to wait in line to a place that has a guest list, but no people.
