The main reason to go to Trading Post is for its Happy Hour, which goes until 7pm during the week and runs all day on weekends. But while you’re drinking $5 beers inside the huge three-floor space or at a sidewalk table outside, you should also get some bar food. Share a cracker-thin pizza with sausage, or get a burger and watch sports on TV by the bar.
Trading Post is permanently closed.
