Why is the Blue & Gold Tavern worth a visit? Cheap booze. It's not particularly glamorous inside (several threadbare booths, questionable bathrooms and a big wooden bar), and there's nothing beyond the standard activities of shooting pool and listening to classic tunes on the jukebox. It's all about the cheap booze here, plain and simple. Most drinks, from wells to taps, can run as little as three bucks (!). So, when happy-I'm-off-work-hour rolls on, blue collars and random post-9to5ers saunter in to grab a seat at the bar and down a few before heading home. As the night wears on, college kids pack in by the dozen to capitalize on the drink prices, consequently upping the volume and adding a bit more under-25 eye candy.
