Head to Solid State when you want to play board games with your friends in a setting that’s a lot more fun than your apartment. This large Woodside bar has a long counter up front with a rotating menu of local craft beers and ciders. In the back, where there are 10 pinball machines, you can become Indiana Jones in the form of a tiny silver ball. Even on a Friday night, there are plenty of available places to sit, and they have a big selection of games. Play something classic like Battleship or chess, or prove once and for all that you are indeed the wittiest person in your friend group by dominating Cards Against Humanity all night long. If you get hungry, they have franks and brats, but you can also bring in outside food.
