A great place to chill, this neighborhood hang is a beer-lover's paradise..
Dart-wielding revelers get their game on at this former grain and feed shop. The sparse decor is mostly limited to play posters, a deer head and straightforward seating befitting convivial corner taps. Neighbors of varying ages and tax brackets drop in for drafts while Ella Fitzgerald wafts through the hallowed halls. Come summer, a comfortable, enclosed beer garden peppered with trees and shrubs--as well as a bocce ball court--provides an outdoor alternative.
Strong drinks for a fair price; 12 high-end drafts, including Sierra Nevada and New Castle, cater to beer connoisseurs, while low-cost Schlitz, PBR and Old Style get swing votes among the frugal. Thirty-plus bottles round out the selection, and a balanced bar is equipped to crank out your favorite libation--as long as it's not frilly--with ease. TVs offer sports-related viewing for those who must get their athletic fix.
NO TUBE TOPS, PLEASE. Cody's is a fantastic place to sit around for hours, especially if you enjoy darts and bottles of PBR & Schlitz. If you like, you can bring your dog. Don't come expecting to dance or hook up with a cute stranger, though - Cody's isn't that type of place. The case of "Cheers" would like it; the case of "The OC," not so much.
