Over in the mostly locals neighborhood Sunset Harbor, no-nonsense Purdy is not unlike your best friend’s basement, featuring a pool table and a slew of board games such as Operation to keep the attention-deficit-disordered from tuning out. The cocktails are relatively cheap, there’s no cover, no DJ, and no attitude. On weekends, though, there can be a line, so be prepared. Saturday night has become the preferred night for locals, and weekday happy hour draws a young professional crowd on the prowl.
