Bob’s Country Bunker-The Blue’s Brothers
It’ll take a little while to get there but whether you’re thirsty or you’re hungry or whether you’re just driving through Bob’s Country Bunker is the perfect spot to suck back a couple of beers and dig into the state’s best pepper steaks, but you better enjoy the only two types of music in these parts; Country and Western.
The Three Broomsticks-Harry Potter
You’re not of legal age to perform magic outside of Hogwarts? Pfft who cares because there doesn’t seem to be a legal drinking age amongst the wizarding world, so pull up a stool and order yourself a hearty tankard of butterbeer or if you’ve had a particularly hard Potions class with Snape, make it a double Firewhisky.
Moe’s Tavern-The Simpsons
It may not have passed its food hygiene inspection with flying colours but let’s face it, you don’t come to Moe’s for a plate of gourmet food. You come to relax after a tedious day of work down at the Nuclear Power Plant and stay for the Duff.
Crossroads Inn-Game of Thrones
