The first thing you need to know about Woodlawn Tap is that everyone calls it Jimmy’s - it’s one of those places that goes by an unofficial name, like the Sears Tower. Drinks are cheap and the food isn’t great, but good enough to get you through a long night of drinking here. Like most great dives, Jimmy’s is cash only.
