Where: George & Dragon (4240 N. Central Ave.; 602-241-0018). It's a five-minute walk north from the station, and it's pretty much the only thing in the vicinity.


Drink: Tetley's ale ($4.75). Tons of English ales on draft, as well as all the usual domestic suspects. G&D serves some decent pub grub as well.

Scene: A favorite among some New Times employees, G&D was destined for a spot along the light rail, as it's a natural for any kind of pub crawl. Even it's a bit too bright much of the time, you can't go wrong with this drinkery: occasional live bands, pool tables, dart boards, long bar, soccer on the numerous TVs, Internet jukebox (actually featuring a local band or two), picture of Joe Strummer behind the bar. This is definitely the kind of place where 30-something guys who wish they'd been able to knock around London back in '77 like to hang out. Not that there's anything wrong with that. -- Jay Bennett
