Disregard this Gilbert joint's fierce-faced logo and surly-sounding name, as Crabby Don's is often the site of fun and festive times courtesy of its numerous distractions and drink deals. For instance, it's hard to stay sour when buxom bartenders are serving you such specials as $10 beer buckets (featuring five bottles of domestic brews like Coors and Budweiser) and $3 well drinks every day. Once you've picked a drink, head for the front half of the establishment to partake in some live music. A large stage for bands and an even larger red and blue mural of a fiddler crab occupy one corner of the bar, while another wall is covered from floor to ceiling with various flyers and posters from previous gigs by local rock and hip-hop groups. Meanwhile, the back room is dominated by games of skill, including billiards, shuffleboard, and arcade units. Try not to frown if you end up losing to your friends, however, as you might disrupt Crabby Don's happy vibe.
