The Tried and True


This is a bar, but it’s not a bar bar, meaning you might see someone who is drunk, but you probably won’t find any actual drunks. It’s too nice for that. Credit Nick Badovinus (Off -Site Kitchen, Neighborhood Services). His nostalgic streak shoots through the joint, from an entire wall given over to vintage beer signs, to the bathroom walls covered with pages cut from old magazines, to the two ’70s-era Honda cafe racers (one parked by the kitchen, the other hanging from the rafters). When you’re thirsty, consider whiskey. Badovinus has a serious whiskey fetish and The Tried and True pours 76 varieties. Or maybe beer. How about a Pabst Blue Ribbon in a 16-ounce tall-boy can, a local craft beer by Lakewood Brewing Company, or even a $3 can of Schlitz?
