  • Sign of the Whale
    It takes more than good burgers and beer to keep a pub open for almost half a century. In addition to its quality eats and drinks, Sign of the Whale can attribute its longevity to its regular parties and constantly updated technology. The 18th Street landmark boasts an extensive menu executed by Head Chef Donny Frazier and anchored by its famed burgers, charbroiled patties topped with everything from fried eggs to tater tots. Bartenders wash down the hearty meals with craft beers that flow from taps at three different bars, including a private loft bar. For entertainment, the owners mounted 16 plasma screen TVs around the bar’s circumference, including a 72-incher that gets fed a constant stream of live sporting events via satellite. When the Sun clocks out and night falls, they turn down the televisions and crank up the digital audio system, fueling birthday bashes and karaoke parties with powerful beats.
