Before we tell you anything else about Taproom on 19th, we should tell you that they have a $2 burger during Happy Hour, which makes about as much sense as dudes who wear shorts in 20-degree weather just to prove their masculinity. But in the case of the burger, we’re happy about it. Despite being pretty nondescript and looking like every other sports bar in the city, Taproom on 19th has burgers and wings that are far superior to anywhere else around, and you can get them for super cheap on weeknights before 7pm. So you should get in by 6:55pm, order your $2 burger, and wait for whatever game is probably coming on at 7pm.
