I'll grab a craft cocktail with friends which costs about $14-$16 for an old fashion which tastes amazing but makes me cry when the bill comes.

My favorite place to enjoy a cold one is at a dive bar

What Is A Dive Bar?

A dive bar to me is small and often has very low lighting

You're likely to find a bunch of familiar faces that come back time after time.

You don't have to dress to impress, just come as you are.

And the drinks are often served up strong.

BONUS POINTS... They have a free self-serve popcorn machine

I love the look of the inside and the staff is very friendly. I love to grab a beer and enjoy a pierogi basket or some coney dogs.
