Sometimes, hole-in-the-wall neighborhood bars are the best bars, just look for the red derby painted above the black door and you'll know you're in the right place. The color theme remains consistent once inside, with the walls in the dimly lit bar painted red. The Red Derby has a stellar collection of beers and there are always specials, just make sure you inquire about them. The deck is very popular and while it deserves its acclaim, that popularity leads to it filling up quickly. If you want a seat (or even a good spot), you'd better get there early. Then there are the board games. Everything is more fun when you're drunk (except mornings), so drunken board game wars should hold a special place in your heart. You're really afforded the opportunity to be a grown kid at the Red Derby, and that holds a ton of weight.
