Best (Only?) Free Happy-Hour Crockpot

Bernard's

Every weeknight at Bernard's, sometime between 4:30 and 5 in the evening, a waiter wanders downstairs (Bernard's is the basement restaurant-lounge beneath the Hotel Seattle), typically armed with a crockpot. In that crockpot, you might find cocktail weenies or maybe meatballs. And alongside that crockpot, you might find onion rings or taquitos. This food isn't to die for—not even close. But the price—free—couldn't be more right. Even if the food isn't anything to write home about (it's not), you're sure to get your money's worth, see? Plus, Bernard's is one of the last quaint, dingy hotel bars in the city, the sort of place where lawyers, cops, journalists, and politicians are apt to meet to discuss private matters, which makes for peerless eavesdropping.—Mike Seely
