shirley is the beer goddess---serving only pabst blue ribbon and a couple of other domestics, along with wonderful burgers and grilled cheese, this is the place to go to wind down and take a load off, without spending your life savings for a beer. the lamplighter has an unbelievable life of its own, filled with characters no novelist could imagine. its a place to join in the conversation, or just sit and watch--either way, you'll be glad you went, if only for a moment. and if jack's feet do happen to be in your way-step on them and tell him darcy told you to.
Pros: cheep beer, great people, cheep music/pool
Cons: cheep beer=drunk, a tad smokey
