Going out sometimes means standing around while you nod and pretend that you can hear what your friends are saying over the music. But when you want a bar with activities that don’t involve losing your voice, there’s Joystick. It’s a divey bar in Edgewood that has cheap beer, well drinks, and a ton of old school arcade games that will make you feel like you’re at your best friend’s ninth birthday party again. If you’re looking for a group game instead, there’s another room with Jenga, foosball, and board games, along with big coffee tables and couches.
