Cusumano's Pizza

At Cusamano's, scarf St. Louis-style pizzas oozing over with melted provel like the "Nick's" specialty pizza with hamburger, black olive and mushroom and wash it down -- if you dare -- with a kamikaze or purple hooter shot for just a buck a pop. The purple hooter comes out of an upcycled bottle in a frighteningly artificial grape-ish hue and tastes like melted popsicle. Slam a few or just get a personal-size pitcher of your favorite low budget beer. It's the perfect thing to slosh around while bumping shoulders with punks and metalheads in the pit during the occasional anything goes show upstairs. Cusumano's dark, two-story frat basement, replete with pool tables, bar-top trivia machines and a fun jukebox, also attracts a lot of industry types who swing by after their shifts; if you've ever fantasized about hooking up with a bartender, you'll find plenty to sidle up to here.
