Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name, and sometimes you want to go where everybody isn't trying to steal your shoes. Drink among footed friends with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pub fare and drinks at The Checkerboard Tavern on East Sprague Avenue.

Slinging spirits for nearly 80 years, the historic Checkerboard Tavern tackles appetites with a menu of gourmet hot dogs and slays thirsts with local brews. Toting the oldest liquor license in the state above its well-stocked bar, the Check sports a wide selection of domestics ($2.25), microbrews ($3.50), and regional suds ($3.50) from Golden Hills, Laughing Dog, and Iron Horse, as well as an old-timey jukebox that coughs up five spins for each greenback fed into its golden gullet. Get cozy in a fire-engine-red booth and anchor incisors into an assembly of encased meats, such as the Sonnenberg Dog, which tops a classic italian sausage with onions, ketchup, mustard, and relish, or the old-fashioned PB&J Dog, which arrives with crusts cut off in a He-Man lunchbox ($4). All dogs can be substituted for vegan tofurkey sausage, and assorted snacks and house fries are available for noshing ($5–$6).

Bask in the glow of the Check's big-screen televisions, or admire owner Keith's vintage motorcycles as live music on weekends soundtracks his epic tales of stunt jumps over shark-filled fermentation tanks.
