Club Night 

Mug Night at B-Side

Reaction to the B-Side Liquor Lounge's Mug Night is always the same: "When I heard mugs, I thought coffee cups. Not this. This is a fucking stein." Every Wednesday night, $3 nabs you a wrist-straining mug of Pabst Blue Ribbon. You get to keep the mug and refill it for a mere buck. The deal drives in tons of fauxhemians to the Coventry hipster bar tucked below the Grog Shop. Inside, it's like Brooklyn on the Cuyahoga: Beards, skinny jeans, and flannels abound, with a few Sam Elliott-style mustaches thrown in for good measure. Quarters are close, shoulders rub. Indie hits and remixes ride the air in a seesaw between glamorous and grimy. After midnight, the place gets fully flocked. A gaggle of lumberjacks break into a rowdy pull-up contest on an exposed rafter. Bouncers don't swarm, nobody intervenes, and the dancing and guzzling go on undisturbed. Welcome to America, my friends. Kyle Swenson
