Favorite places for a drink and a snack

kosheri | Oct 8, 201402:41 PM     14

What are your favorite places to go when you want to sit somewhere late afternoon or on a weekend and have a drink and a snack? Bonus points for North Central.

I like Workhorse for their atmosphere and drinks, but while their burger can be good, they don't really have any snacky things/appetizers that are appealing.

I used to go to Black Star Coop a lot but stopped for various reasons. They also don't have cocktails.

For walking distance from home and super cheap, Cheko's has nachos that satisfy my grease and salt cravings plus cheap beer, but it's not really a place you want to spend too much time in.

EDIT: Oh, I'm not necessarily looking for recommendations in the way that visitors do. I just meant this as a kind of a compilation thread (and I added the bit about bonus points for North Central because that's what I'm most interested in but don't mean to limit it since that doesn't apply to everyone).
