Actual speakeasies hid craps tables and illegal booze. Nowadays, speakeasies hide Tetris and skeeball. Walk through the cooler door at Roxy’s Grilled Cheese and you’ll find A4Cade, an arcade and bar filled with people playing Tron, drinking local beers, and nerding out over the Game of Thrones and Simpsons themed cocktails. The food menu is essentially Roxy’s selection of grilled cheese, burgers, and hot dogs, so get the muenster club and try not to think about the fact that you now worry a lot more about exchanging germs while playing Guitar Hero than you did when you were younger.
