Info

When Hartford-area residents think of cheap drinks, their minds wander over to Big Ass Beer Night at Pigs Eye Pub, where a 23-ounce pilsner glass costs five bucks and four different drafts are available for $1. “Any other Wednesday, you can bring the glass back,” says manager Keith Rocheleau. “If you forget it, you can always buy another one.” And those Wednesdays at Pig's Eye? Jam packed. “We have a line of people waiting to get in,” Rochelau says. “It's a younger crowd, live DJ, never a cover. We have a special every night of the week. We always have an option.”

Since 1997, Hartfords Pig's Eye Pub has been a happening destination for pool players. One of the bar's two open sides is lined with three well-maintained tables, with free pool on Sundays and lots of suds to go around (and no cover charge). “People come in just for pool,” says manager Keith Rocheleau. “That and the cheap beer. Some people come in to play competitively, others just to shoot around.” They used to host tournaments, but no longer. That shouldnt stop you from rocking your favorite trick shot to “Werewolves of London.”
