Though 200 domestic bottles, craft beers, and imports reside on the drink menu at Hop Heads Ale House, the bar’s draft selections are some of its most popular brews. With a rotating selection of kegs on 11 taps, servers encourage guests sample bright and foamy brews culled mostly from small-batch breweries. To accentuate the flavors of each pint, the kitchen crew at Hop Heads crafts pub specialties such as rib-eye-cheesesteak sandwiches and chicken wings smothered in one of eight sauces. Wraps come stuffed with the likes of seared ahi tuna or veggies, and fresh soups are tapped fresh from local soup trees. The bar also runs a daily happy hour from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. each day, in addition to nightly specials and live music every Friday and Saturday night.

Ribs, burgers, and beers sate appetites at Memphis Belle Saloon, but the saloon's crowded calendar and collection of games draw as many visitors as its kitchen does. As draft handles bow to fill glasses with Guinness and Sam Adams, groups gather for mixology classes or Monday-night poker tournaments. Dart leagues and skee ball leagues meet Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Trivia occupies four hours on Fridays, while teachers enjoy free access to a buffet and stacks of all-they-can-grade Scantrons. Thursdays host programs such as bourbon tastings and wine dinners the educate palates on fine flavors.

Don’t let the shepherd's pie, fish 'n' chips, and draft beers fool you. Though Tilted Kilt snatches up the best cultural fragments of Scotland, England, and the Emerald Isle, the eatery started in Las Vegas. Restaurateur Mark DiMartino sought to combine the communal, rousing feel of pubs in the British Isles with the campy fun of American sports bars, pairing hearty food and traditional trappings with televisions and waitresses clad in mini kilts and alluring plaid halter-tops modeled after William Wallace’s eveningwear. Since its founding, Tilted Kilt locations have popped up in 25 states and two Canadian provinces, serving all manner of hybrid dishes such as the Scottish cheese steak, the Sloppy Jane made with sliced turkey or shaved rib eye, and the Tilted Guilt, an ice-cream sundae perched atop a cookie.

Even if you do make good on your New Year’s resolution to travel back in time and avert World War II, you’ll still need something to do there when you get bored. Today’s Groupon will teach you to swing splendid danceful swings with three Monday-night swing-dancing classes at Charm City Swing for $10 (a $30 value). A syncopated step and triple-step at Charm City is the best reason to go out on a Monday night, according to Baltimore Magazine. No partner is necessary, so you can leave that clumsy dance-golem you created at home.

Sully’s strives to keep it classy. With a clean-comedy policy and a two-monocle dress code, the club hosts a lineup of regular and traveling comedians who have honed their timing everywhere from Comedy Central to HBO to Last Comic Standing. Winner of the 2011 World Series of Comedy in Las Vegas, Ryan Dalton takes the mic on August 17 and 18, opining with in-your-face glee on the health risks of exercise and vegetables, and the best way to inform someone they are not a triceratops. Also taking the stage is Nick Cantone, who transforms his mustache into comedy gold by meditating on its effect on his dating life and the sophistication it embodies. While laughing along, audiences can munch on classic pub eats or sip signature cocktails such as the Silly Sully, a blend of Malibu rum, blue curacao, and pineapple juice.

Sipping Pretty acts as a conduit to the world of wine, welcoming customers with wine tastings and educational classes. Its mobile tastings follow a curriculum centered on the four S's of wine tasting and succeeding as a talking police dog: see, sniff, sip, and summarize. Each tasting showcases critically acclaimed wines that tasters can pair with meat and cheese from included snack platters. Seminars offer an alternative way to explore wine, delving into not only the art of tasting but how wine is made and questions of etiquette surrounding its consumption, such as which vintages are best served with a curly straw.
