Frank's 1st Alarm Bar

You know you're in the right place when the owner of a bar just happens to be sitting a few seats away -- and when the regulars can give you the bar's storied history just as well as the proprietor. Frank's First Alarm (so named because said owner is a firefighter named Frank) is a sleepy southside tavern outfitted with a pool table, weekend karaoke, a real live Pac Man arcade game and a funny little casino game called Keno. Frank's is one of the joints exempt from the upcoming smoking ban, so it likely won't be sleepy for long.
