The crowd at Black Dog runs the gamut from regular old salty dogs to off-duty firefighters and cops, and it's not uncommon for now-graduated students to run into their former high-school teachers. While the coziness tends toward that of a dive bar, the plethora of flatscreens and well-prepared munchies—all whipped up in the full-service kitchen—suggests otherwise. On weekends, there's a D.J. whose two seven-foot-tall standing speakers blare an idiosyncratic mix of Top 40, eighties and nineties throwbacks, and fist-pumping techno no matter who's on the dance floor.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
