That one friend you know who owns a Sega Genesis is really getting sick of you showing up unannounced to play Mortal Kombat and eat all their Bugles. How to fix that: go to Georgetown Liquor Company, a musty dive bar with few redeeming qualities other than its three old-school consoles and massive library of game cartridges. Grab an on-tap sour beer and some vegetarian pub food, and rediscover how hard Donkey Kong Country actually is.
