Roger Says: The beer at Rudy's is cheap, there's a giant pig out front, and the hot dogs are free. You don’t get a free lunch too often anymore, but just ask the bartenders, “Hey, can I have a hot dog?,” and they give you one for free. It’s a true dive, but the bartenders are always nice, pretty attentive. If I’m there, it's because I'm going to see a show nearby and have a couple of minutes to kill. It’s just that kind of place.
