The Beauty of Moe’s and Joe’s

I’m going to Moe’s & Joe’s tonight. No, I’m not just announcing my social schedule to you. There’s a reason I’m going. Tonight (and every Tuesday) they have they’re special ultra cheap pitchers of PBR. Typically, the pitchers are just cheap, not as ultra cheap as they are tonight. Though that is definitely a draw, Moe’s and Joe’s also used to have a great jukebox (it was digital, connected to the internet and you got something like 35 songs for $5, so getting there early was a huge bonus to dominating the jukebox for the night) and they used to lose track of how many pitchers you had ordered as a group. It’s a dive otherwise, but the kind of dive that grows on you and, more recently, the service has been far above it’s dive status (like, they’re nice to you and stuff). The other reason I like going to Moe’s and Joe’s is that it is two blocks from my house, so getting home is never an issue. Seriously, Moe’s and Joe’s is one of my favorite places to go for happy hour/special priced-night/whatever it’s called.

Other places I enjoy – Stool Pigeons and their $2 pints of everything on Friday nights and Giorgio’s when they have the special pizza + pitcher deals going on (have you been to Giorgio’s on Collier? Excellent pizza place).

My question, dear Atlanta Metroblog readers, is what is your favorite in the city?

    I’m a big fan of Gravity Pub and The EARL in East Atlanta. Both have decent beer (although not always cheap), good bar food, and The EARL is a great place to see music. Oh, they are both within walking distance from my place, that also makes me happy.

    The Highlander. Hands down. Within walking distance, great beer and food, cool people, and they now have that PGA game. I’m a sucker for a track ball.

    I still have yet to make it to the Highlander even though it is within walking distance for me… What nights are good to go? I just have to force myself, I think…

    Umm… Trackball?

    Daniel – it’s like Golden Tee, but better.

    Better than Golden Tee? I find that hard to believe…

    I swear, I didn’t believe it at first either. Also, any night’s good at the Highlander. That’s the best part.

    What about Atkins Park? You can’t beat Baby Jaegers for everyone on Friday @ 6:00….
