When it comes to taking a load off and having a cocktail, the along North First Street is the best place to do so, say the readers of Dixon Patch.
Through their poll votes, and comments, readers of the Patch have selected the popular venue as the best place to drink a cocktail.
Part of the reason the Vet's Hall has attained this honor is its bartender, Brit Delwiche, said Greg Coppes, American Legion commander.
"It's really a compliment to Brit," Coppes said. "Brit can make just about anything."
Coppes said that Delwiche has yet to be stumped on a drink, but it doesn't stop people from trying to, even if they make things up. But Delwiche's skills at making cocktails save him from being stumped.
Another aspect of the Vet's Hall that people seem to enjoy is live entertainment every Friday, Coppes said. Today, the Vet's Hall will host Kiss N Tell, for no cover charge. The Vet's Hall also hosts a zero-cover-charge karaoke on Fridays when a live band is not performing, Coppes said.
Asked why people like the cocktails at the Vet's Hall, Coppes said: "I think it's mostly the good, cheap drinks and the atmosphere. The bar area, it’s a clean and robust area."
