The 1700 block of East Broadway is a good place to be if you like inexpensive, cozy gay watering holes like the Brit. It's small and dark inside, and the bartenders and patrons are fun and friendly. There's no better place if you're looking for a no-fuss, casual atmosphere to hang out, talk and drink. As one patron put it, the Brit is "laid-back, no attitude." It has a full liquor bar and offers a good selection of beers, including Newcastle, Blue Moon, Shock Top Belgian White, Guinness and Sam Adams. It also has a smoking patio, three television screens, two pool tables and an Internet jukebox. Happy hour starts when the bar opens and lasts until 7 p.m., featuring $3 beer and well drinks, with $2 drafts. On Thursdays, beers are $2.50 and pool is free. It's cash-only, but don't worry-if you forget your scratch, there's an ATM inside.
