Mt Vernon area - need a bar

wayne keyser | Jul 31, 2009 02:14 PM

I'm a longtime substitute father-figure for a newly-21 family friend. We're going out Sunday afternoon so I can pass on some (I humbly call it) manly wisdom, and I gotta find a bar. If that's not foodie enough, if they got chicken strips from the fryolator, maybe that will pass muster here (maybe you'll give me a pass as a usual 'authentic Chinese' devotee in other posts?).

Anyway, we'll be in the Route 1 / Mt. Vernon / Hybla Valley area, and I really think what we need is a "guy place." If you can only suggest brewpubs and other upscale drinkeries, that's OK, I'll consider them, but I'd be happier for someplace dark, not even a hint of decor (neon beer signs a plus), with a scattering of old guys who have been drinking since the place opened at 9am. Places you've seen driving past are OK.

Suggestions?
