What we loved: The interactive bit of interior design. The Vig has an orange backlit wall near the bar where you can release your intoxicated inklings with dry erase markers. Also, the staff and regulars were incredibly welcoming and friendly.

What we didn't love: The trip the light fantastic indie hipster dance night that is Mixtape is missing the indie kids. There just weren't that many people there in general actually. 

Are we going back? We bet we'll be back. We always were a sucker for a mixtape.
