|The Gang at GST|
You can't order food at the Grant Street Tavern. So if you intend to make dinner plans, prepare to be disappointed. However, if you are in the neighborhood, and you are in the mood for a stiff drink and some free snacks, this is your place. Wednesday through Friday the Grant Street Tavern puts out free food for patrons. I asked my friend Sara Heald (red candy-striper shirt) why and she explained that this is the food left over from lunch and the GST makes a habit of putting it out for everyone to enjoy. The few times I've been there the offerings have consisted of small finger sandwiches, pepperoni rolls, marinated cheese, meatloaf, Italian hoagies and other various bits.
The food isn't worth making a special trip for, but it is free and pretty tasty. The bar has a very strange atmosphere. It is located in the Grant building downtown, but you would think you were drinking at a desolate country bar in Venango county. The interior is dark with wood paneling, mis-matched furniture, cherry master machines and brown carpeting. The patrons are noisy and often quite excitable as the drinks at the GST are very strong. They heard our happy hour was coming and provided us with our very own chicken wings and relish plate! The wings were very good and I can't wait to go back for my next stiff drink and free snack-time.
