The Ottobar, 2549 N. Howard St., (410) 662-0069, theottobar.com
Sometimes life just doesn’t wait and you need to get good and drunk on a school night. If by chance this happens on a Tuesday, get ye to Ottobar. The concept is pretty simple: Pay the regular price of one drink and two appear. But it’s more than that. The friendly bartenders hustle about to take the orders of thirsty patrons as DJs spin indie and Top 40, usually drawing a nice dance party. And the place is packed to the gills—with pool players, youngs, olds, and pretty much anyone who enjoys cheap booze. And with twice the purchasing power, it’s easy to get fucked up.
