The Plough and Stars is about as comfortable a little pub you’re likely to find, the type of place where you’ll sit down for a beer with a few friends in the afternoon and end up staying all night. It also helps that there’s free live music every night, a $10 burger and beer special during the day, and a menu of stuff you don’t usually find in a pub, like lamb bolognese and smoked gouda mac and cheese.
