Cheers: The best patio in Buffalo, see all the action of Elmwood, scope out prospects for extracurricular activites, or just walk around muttering under your breath and asking to bum smokes. Lotsa eye candy, very fashionable crowd. Leave the Bills jersy and Zubaz at home. Blue crab tacos in Buffalo, made me flashback to a drunken memory of a beach in Maryland, engorging myself on Blue Crab, and waking up adorned with seagull poop. This palce seems dedicated to making you get wasted, the Grande Margaritas will turn you into a slurring, stumbling mess faster than an illegal immigrant can "swim" the Rio Grande (and its really shallow in some places). Easy place to impress anyone, your hot neighbor that you have been scoping out, mom, maybe even your college roomate (if they're paying). House nacho platter is ungodly, piled high with all kinds of bowel moving goodies, but well worth it. House micros, Border Patrol and Loaded Goat are made by Custom Brewcrafters. Loaded Goat, now thats a name. Just don't wake up with anything that has horns, you will either be arrested or are in hell (which would be Buffalo Brewpub). A couple of other NY micros, but mostly crapola. Hockey nite is huge here, make sure you arrive early to secure your seat. Make sure to mark your territory. That way you can avoid the always long line for the potty.

Jeers: Make sure you ask about the FREE nachos, they are really stingy with them, like they are made out Ludacris's bling. The bathroom is located in the back somewhere, better luck sneaking a whizz in the rental parking lot next door. Plus the line can get extra long making it very painful to stand with a bunch of squirming fellows. Really could use a few more micros, but the rest of the joint makes up for the lack. Outdoor heated patio in winter is taken over by late nite diners who certainly do not apprecitae your reverly and hijinx. Take it inside (not you). It is way to easy to get loaded here and realize at the end of the night that you have a huge bar tab. Too easy.

My first time here at Cozumel,the Allentown art festival was going this weekend so when we showed up the place was packed inside and out with people everywhere luckily we were able to find a close parking spot.There is a big outside covered seating area and as you walk in the bar is straight ahead with most of the tables off to right.A decent tap selection two house beers brewed by Custom Brewcrafters a Border Patrol brown and Loaded Goat red wich is supposed to be a pretty hoppedup red unfortunantly they were out of it wich was a bummer.Magic Hat #9,Great Lakes Edmond Fitzgerald,EBC pale ale,and Sam Adams summer ale were other highlights of the taps selection,our server was quite friendly and very promp you could tell she had been running around all day if not all weekend.A nice menu with things you dont see everyday like deepried cactus ssticks or crab and avacodo cakes and alot of uses for soft shell crabs,I had the crab tacos with a southwestern remoulade wich were pretty good with my wife getting the red snapper tacos wich she liked.There were five of us and the bill split up came to around $70.00 dollars with app and beer included so not bad.I like the neighborhood and the vibe I'll be back.
