Where to Go to Soak Up the Booze, and Get Some More
In that dining dead-zone that exists after your pre-concert dinner has worn off and martini-induced munchies have set in…this is the domain of fried cheese.
Of course, you would never be seen eat it normally. But at around 10:30 p.m., when your stomach cries out for something to absorb some of the alcohol (and your friends cry out for more martinis!), shining like a beacon of ambiance lighting is Bricks Café, the relatively new late night eatery on lower State Street that serves cheap eats and drinks every evening. And these days, Bricks is also hosting comedy nights on Thursdays, live jazz on Wednesday nights, and football games galore on Sundays, with drink specials.
So next time you’re out on the town and need some grub with something to wash it down, do what I do: Walk in with $20, enjoy these fried cheese sticks and another martini, and you’ll still have enough cash for a cab ride home. What could be better?
The Details: Bricks Cafe is located at 509 State Street. To stay updated on their weekly features, make sure to check out their MySpace page by clicking here or going straight to www.myspace.com/brickscafe.
