Stoney’s is a Foggy Bottom sports bar known for its grilled cheese sandwiches and outdoor seating. We like it best during the food and drink happy hour from 5-7pm (if you’re on a later schedule, they do it again from 11pm until close). The honey Sriracha lime chicken wings are your best bet (10 for $10 during said happy hour), and if the Caps game goes into overtime but you’ve exceeded your drink limit, end the night with a Captain Crunch milkshake. Although this sounds like the perfect student hangout, it’s mostly a post-grad crowd.

Froggy Bottom is a mix of Vietnamese and bar food, and it’s surprisingly great for some low-key pho.

The Fainting Goat
Fainting Goat isn’t great, but you’ll end up here at some point. When the time comes, go heavy on the drinks and light on the food.
