Best Bar Crawl

Madison Avenue in Lakewood

With a bar on every corner for well over a mile, Madison Avenue is the place for serious, Leaving Las Vegas-style boozing. There's a rough-and-tumble spot (Madison's), a futuristic watering hole (Capsule), a classy Irish pub (Sullivan's), and a sports bar (Characters). There's also good food (Rockwood Subs, Angelo's Pizza) and great prices (check out the $1.75 20-ouncers at the Patio, a bit further down) -- to say nothing of the district's best perk: It's all within walking distance, so you can get bent without bending fenders.
