Can anybody in the local Raleigh area suggest any good bars?
I can't stand to be stuck in my apartment in the evenings these days--it feels like the walls are unmaking my brain, and I'm getting majorly twitchy--and all the local coffee shops close well before I'm ready to call it a night. Unfortunately, not being much of a bar hopper, I know few that aren't slammed all the time. I would prefer something reasonably quiet rather than crushed to the gills. I'm not a huge drinker--I have one and switch to coke, usually--but given sketchbooks, I can amuse myself for quite awhile.
And no karaoke.
Anybody got any suggestions?
