Larry's Tavern

Located on Manchester Road in Wildwood sits Larry's Tavern, a white clapboard building and gravel parking. Larry's feels like it belongs in south city, with only the occasional Volvo in the parking lot to imply otherwise. Inside the air's ripe with cigarette smoke and the constant sizzle of fresh burgers on the grill. Folks at the bar range from their twenties to seventies, nursing beers and sharing stories. During one visit the bartender talks a customer into letting her use his swimming pool for a party. Streams of patrons pick up carry-out boxes of burgers and fries during the lunch hour, not stopping to imbibe, even though the old guys at the bar are generous with the free beer tokens.
