Want to know why locals refer to this landmark dive as the "Dirty Verde?" It could be because of all the band stickers and graffiti covering the walls of the men's room, which also features an old-school condom machine. The chain-link fence surrounding the smoking area is another nice touch. Or maybe it's the funky clientele from around the neighborhood who come to start their drinking during the daytime, mixing with a more bohemian evening crowd. The PBR and other cheap booze flow like water here, and a variety of local punk and noise rock bands perform in one corner on the weekend. That's right: There's no stage here.
