Although no one can explain why, most people agree that beer and pizza go together like a melodious string of shooby-dooby-do-bop-a-doobity-dang-a-dooby. Keep this melodic pair together with today's Groupon: for $12, you get a pizza dinner for two at The Heavy Anchor (up to a $22 value). This dinner includes two beverages (up to a $12 value) and one Dogtown pizza (up to a $10 value).
Currating a bustling indie scene of regular live music and movie nights, The Heavy Anchor's press-lauded, dive-bar appeal reels in locals with an extensive line-up of rotating beers and light bar fare. Dining duos can settle into a pair of cushioned barstools and dig in to a Dogtown pizza, smattered with meat or vegetarian adornments. Drink-slingers serve up two beverages from the full-service bar, which brims with soda, more than 50 beers, and an extensive collection of liquors. Take taste buds for a ride with a Twisted Tea, keep it classic with a PBR, or go gluten-free with a Red Bridge brew. Parched pairs can also clink glasses of Wild Turkey or Pernod absinthe to fuel up for impromptu Flashdance flash mobs. Attendees can beef-up their dinner date with a side of Gus' pretzels or Billy Goat chips for an additional fee.
As patrons mingle at round, high-top tables or try to best their grandmother's high score at the shuffleboard table, sea-inspired murals pay homage to man's eternal struggle against hostile gangs of giant squids, octopodes, and narwhals. Bar-goers can drop in for an entertaining eve of Tuesday-night trivia, double-feature movies on Wednesday, and beer bingo held the last Monday of the month.
