The Library is named as such in the same way that Bob Saget's most famous joke is called "The Aristocrats." After taking in its scholarly façade--sullied racks and racks of books--you spot, on a sign above the bar, an advertisement for "The Pube," which consists of a can of Busch and a shot of whiskey, all for $5. That's the drink of a true dive. Grunge and punk music blares in the background, and skull heads decorate the blackened room to match.
