Basically Everything -- Worcester, MA

Hilton Garden Inn -- You weren't impressed.  Maybe there's some place better, maybe not.  It's apparently in the heart of "downtown" but you wouldn't know from walking around.  Also, what the heck is up with the parking lot across the street smelling like rancid grease all the time?

The White Eagle -- With a linoleum counter and keno on the big screen, this place belongs next to a trailer park, in a good way.  But it's not, so skip it next time.  (If a trailer park sprouts up, right next to it, the clientele will lend the perfect vibe, and you should try it again.)

Banner Bar & Grille -- Meh.  Kind of a typical sports bar.  I mean, it was kind of interesting that while you were there a bunch of Santas (apparently some running club) showed up and sang a song and then took off.  But how often does that happen?

Dive Bar -- Yes it's actually called that, and to their credit, they were the only bar you visited that didn't have their overhead lights turned all the way up.  The selection of beers was alright, though all the IPAs you had were those cloudy unfiltered types that you don't exactly love.  But then again, they were playing Star Wars on a big TV over the bar.  That's worth something, right?

Railers Sports Tavern -- Skip it next time.  I mean, I don't want to sound like a cheapskate, but $10.75 for an 8 oz IPA is a little steep.  That doesn't make me sound like a cheapskate does it?  It kind of does, but really, ten bucks for half a pint?  Okay I'll drop it.  Anyway, skip this place next time.

Pizzeria Uno -- Might as well mention it, since it's conveniently attached to the Hilton Garden Inn where you were staying.  This is, sadly, the safest bet.  Everything here is just short of mediocre, but at least it's predictable, and in the winter it was the only place that had their heat turned up to a sensible level.
