The Scurvy Dog is proud to serve strong drinks, loud music and eclectic eats in a relatively trend-free atmosphere. The Dog is located in historic Olneyville just west of downtown and though most are here for the potent beer and cocktails, the kitchen shouldn't be forgotten because it serves hot dogs and burgers with bizarre, tasty toppings. For instance, the 'Wiggety Waaah' comes with Nutella, bacon and Swiss cheese and the 'Red Light District' is made with raspberry jam and Swiss. When the weather allows, the back patio is a nice place to chill and take one of these fun-to-eat treats.

This bar is hidden away in the bowels of Brown University deep in the basement of the Residential Life building. Unfortunately for the majority of the public, you can only get in if you are a current student at Brown, you are with someone who goes (or went) to Brown, or pay an annual membership fee. For those who opt to pay the fee, it's worth it because the drinks are remarkably cheaper than elsewhere and the Grad allows you to bring in your own food. Inside it definitely screams 'college', with banners everywhere, pool tables, board games and the obligatory dart board.
