    Anything else you recommend? I love fish tacos, the wife not so much.
    Only ate their one time and do not remember what my wife got. Probably some sort of wrap.

    Another new place up there is Taft's Ale House. They opened this past Monday. The brother of my buddy owns the place, and I've seen a ton of positive reviews about it. It's in an old church up on Race street.

    Yes, Santo Graal. It's an Italian place. However, I was under the impression they were possibly going to open another Holy Grail down there with the new construction. Granted, my wife could've gotten the facts mixed up. It wouldn't be a first. :-)

    It is a bar with bar food. You will be taking your teenage daughter into an over packed bar on a Friday night. Plenty of other food options around that may be better suited for you.
    FYI, I took my son there on his 21st birthday and he had a couple buddies with him not of age. They carded them and did not let them in. It was later at night so they may allow minors pregame.

    Pretty sure it's all ages until after 10 pm.

    I'd suggest Yardhouse for dinner. Much bigger and you'd have a better chance of getting a table. They have a ton of food and beer options as well.

    Agreed. Food is very good.

    Pre-game Friday night quick bite options (in order)
    1) O'Malley's in the Alley (close but not too close, hole in the wall, excellent food for a hole in the wall bar, good atmosphere)
    2) Crave (get reservations, food variety is amazing, little pricey)
    3) Eli's (because it's Eli's)
    4) Jimmy John's (yes, I know, not exciting but it's functional and right there
    5) Moerlien House (solid on all accounts, will be somewhat crowded and somewhat pricey)

    Post Game gve me Tin Roof. The 3 times that I have been there, the bands have been awesome. Of course, everything sounds better about 10 beers into the evening. Did I mention that they serve Bourbon Barrel at GABP?

    A second mortgage. It is a smaller serving, also. I forget the exact cost, but it is more expensive than a Bud Light. I go to 2 games a year, so I save for it.

    I figured as much. I could tell ya the price of a lot of things down there, but wasn't sure what the would run you. Figured its just 12 ounces too when most everything else is 16.

    Been there but never ate. The drinks are good though

    I may end up downtown tonight and see about buying cheap tickets to the game.
