323 E. Sixth
Hours: 3pm-2am, daily
There's always a friendly crowd at this Sixth Street stalwart. The grub is pub, and the TVs are hi-def.
Gaze at your shoes and you'll catch them moving to these grunge pop jams. Wed., March 12, 1am.
Joy is overrated. No Joy (lush, poppy, buzzy, driven) is not. Keep your head down so you can bang it while watching those shoes. Hard. Thu., March 13, 11pm.

Irish music, excellent pub grub, and Guinness and Smithwick's Ale by the 20-ounce imperial pint make this a great place to watch sports. Check out six 42-inch hi-def plasma TVs and the 65-inch "ScreenZilla" Mitsubishi in back.

Some say the sliders here are the best in town. Happy hour draws a crowd, and so do the 31 TVs for the sports set.
