  1. For BBQ, I would recommend Mann's on Research near Ohlen. They are closed on Tuesdays though.

    1. What part of town are you going to be in?

      As far as local dive bars go, the ones that are in my rotation are Horseshoe Lounge, Casino El Camino, Ginny's Little Longhorn, Buddy's Place, Shangri-La.
