My camera wouldn’t do justice to the dimly lit interiors of this neighborhood institution, which does an honest trade in burgers, sandwiches, steaks, beers and mixed alcoholic drinks, known as “Fireside Fantasies.” It’s the kind of place Ron Burgundy would be proud to call his local. Perhaps the highest praise comes from this online reviewer: “Eventually, should I ever run for political office, this will be my cold-weather campaign headquarters.”
