For a Manly Time, Head to :

The bar formerly known as the Green Room, formerly known as Kennedy’s, formerly known as : well, you get it, has been reborn as Whiskey Richards, a bar, as its MySpace page bills it, “for the guy’s guy.” Billiards, darts, draught beers from its affiliate S.B. Brewing Co., and a nickname we’ll let you guess (here’s a hint: It’s short for Richard) all solidly back up that claim. Whiskey Richards is located at 435 State Street; call 963-1786.
