Music, Food, Beer, and VinylThis is Reggie's. And Record Breakers. So, get this. The first floor is Reggie's and it's a pub. It doesn't seem fair to call it a restaurant, though when we went there in the middle of a rainy afternoon in mid-May, every table and booth was taken. We sat at the bar. You will like the food. You will enjoy the numerous beers, including the local brews on tap. You will dig the atmosphere; it's kept a little dark inside, but we liked all the 8-by-12 flyers seen along many walls advertising upcoming gigs. Oh yeah, they have live music there at night. Damn good live music. Walk two flights upstairs and you're at Record Breakers, a record store in the truest sense of the term. It's a sea of vinyl, and you can find anything here. My buddy bought an import 33" of Abbey Road by some outfit called The Beatles. I considered buying a turntable just so I could take advantage of places like this. The staff upstairs come off as pretty hip but once you get their attention they're extremely helpful. So yeah...beer, food and music downstairs, amazing vinyl selection upstairs. Who wouldn't enjoy that?
