Stumble into this Edgewater dive most nights and the drinkers bellied up to the bar look as if they’ve been sucking suds since the place opened at 7am. This is your typical shot-and-beer bar, but if simply chugging bores you, there’s a pool table, some TVs and a jukebox featuring choices from Hank Williams to the Clash. Oh, and now that a regular sold the bar owner a piano he garbage-picked from a nearby church, you also can tickle the ivories.
