Three things are essential to day-drinking: a good selection of drafts and spirits; a menu with tasty booze-soakers, like nachos; and something to watch besides daytime TV. So yeah, grabbing a pint and a triple-decker reuben, and getting a window seat to watch East Carson Street stroll by seems like a good day.
