Cheer's

Hidden in an almost abandoned shopping strip, this long-standing veteran-friendly Valley Park dive still manages to be "a place where everyone knows your name." Though not much to look at from the outside, the inside is welcoming; it's highly likely that after only one visit, the bartender will personally introduce you to the regulars. Once inducted into the ranks, you will have no choice but to hear more than one of the stories that accompany Cheers' photos and memorabilia from past and present Army Special Forces. The pool table, substantial menu (including breakfast on Sundays), stage for live music on the weekends and plenty of space for the occasional drinking game offer something for everyone. Just don't be deceived by the mislabeled sign behind the bar: This is not McKenna's Irish Pub; no one is trying to fool you; they have been and always will be Cheers (since 1990). Someone just didn't know *their* name -- yet.
