A long bar, lots of TVs and booths, and a prime Union Street location bring us back to The Brick Yard regularly. It also doesn’t hurt that the sweet potato chips and fried chicken sliders are great. And if you need something with a hint of nutritional value to balance out the four beers you’re going to drink, they have a decent kale salad too. If sports aren’t your thing, they also host an excellent trivia night once a week.
