Available in both liquid and slushy form, the throat-moisturizers at Toocan's Tiki Bar quench thirsts as crowds appease ears with live music or smile-cracking conversation. The first option gives parched patrons credit toward 25-ounce frozen "bones" drinks ($9), which come in flavors including strawberry, piña colada, and the popular Miami Vice—great for cooling down on a warm day or drinking to impress a yeti.

One needs only to cross the threshold of Tic Toc Eating Establishment & Drinkery to be transported across the pond. Rich wood paneling, old-timey chandeliers, and an eclectic mix of antiques hanging on the walls give the eatery the feel of a small-town English pub without the golden pint glass saved in case the Queen stops by after work. The menu, however, is decidedly American, filled with comfort food made from scratch according to over 45-year-old recipes. Clocks and timepieces inspire the sandwich selection, such as Big Ben?s dual hamburger patties and Bulova?s one-third lb. patty topped with bacon and egg. Hickory-flavored Adam?s ribs are slathered with a housemade sauce, leading a smokehouse menu that also includes pulled pork and sausage.

Wild Hogs Saloon & Eatery has all the makings of a great night out?a casual atmosphere, a menu of American-style favorites, and sometimes even live rock bands. The restaurant gives groups of friends a place to meet over meals of burgers, broasted chicken, and ice-cold beers, and take bets on how many spoons they can eat in one sitting. On the weekends, chefs focus their comfort-food expertise on breakfast, crafting homestyle morning meals that make it a little easier to get out of bed.
