The Thirsty Bear is a great place to grab a drink and a bite after work. They usually have a resident DJ playing house, chill or downtempo beats. The atmosphere is comfortable, warm lighting with tall stool seating throughout the room, and comfortable banquet seating along the walls. The beers are excellent (might I recommend the stout), and they have a great selection of cocktails as well. The food is tasty too, I really enjoyed the vegetable empanadas (although the Tortilla Espanola wasn't so thrilling). The desserts are also excellent. The service is hit or miss, depending on who you get, but you do get taken care of.
