Shingletown Pub is a dive bar, but with string lights, nice people, solid bar snacks, and no sticky floor (unless you spill a pint of beer, and that’s really your fault). Order something cold and interesting on draught and share an order of pretzel-crusted cheese curds. If that didn’t convince you, on Tuesdays, everything is two dollars off. Go wild.
