If you're in Eastlake, it's probably because you live there, or you took the wrong exit on I-5. But grabbing a beer at Zoo Tavern with a friend is a nice reason to be in the neighborhood on purpose. It’s a fun dive crammed with an entire neighborhood’s worth of activities: billiards, pinball, ping pong, skee-ball, shuffleboard, and bocce. The food’s pretty similar to what you’d find at a bowling alley, like chicken strips and mozzarella sticks, but most of the stuff on their menu make for a good snack if you’re hungry after a few pints.
