It may at first seem like an ordinary dive bar with live music, but take a look at the food and drink menu, and you'll realize that Saint Vitus is special. Not only is this the venue to see the best hardcore, punk and metal shows in the city, it's also an excellent place to have delicious and affordable refreshments (it's hard to beat $8 for a Bud bottle and a shot of Jameson) and surprisingly good food (the bun bar has a variety of $3 buns, from cheese steak, to BBQ tofu). -Noah Johnson
