One part vaudeville and one part stinging political/social satire, this place has been amusing and delighting its guests, as well as the pedestrians who pass by its front-stage windows and observe its goings-on, since the late 1970s. A troupe of multi-talented performers write, act, sing and dance their way across a broad and constantly updated comedic map that pokes fun at our elected officials, celebrity icons, and regular citizens. It is not all for laughs, though; a magical act comes on a couple of times per show to startle and captivate your senses. This is a true downtown institution.
Beerland, the name says it all. Beers at great prices is just one of the good things about this bar. Occasional live music performed and a rock and roll jukebox always enlighten the bar environment, not to mention pool and arcade games for everybody. One good place to drink your beer, for real.
