    “Cheapest places to drink in town” would make a great thread. I’d nominate “Ray & Dot’s” and “Kingpins”.

    Good read Michael. The weekly newspaper in Madison has a category for “Best of Madison” called “dive bars”. Not a bad category and the taverns listed are a fun place to tip a glass on a slow day
