Take a regular neighborhood bar, then add some funky wallpaper, about 30 paintings of birds, and a menu that includes things like fried cauliflower and a bacon-wrapped hot dog. What you get is Captain Dan’s Good Time Tavern. It is, in fact, a good time tavern. It’s a nice place to hang out. Don’t expect anything crazy to go down here, but it attracts a good crowd, and it’s a nice place to get some casual eating and drinking done.
