At one time or another, we’ve all imagined being in Honey I Shrunk the Kids. Sadly, Rustic Tap won’t fulfill your dream of swimming in Cheerios, but it does have giant beer pong. There are three-foot-tall “Solo cups” and a big ball to hurl across the way. Once the novelty fades after a game or two, though, head to the bar to hear some live music. Since the whole space is outdoors on West Sixth, make sure you head here on one of the 254 sunny days of the year.
