Jocks vs. nerds is a little cliché, but with the prevalence of sports bars in this town, it seems only fair to give the high-water set their due. Luckily, geeks who get down have their own watering hole at Green Room Burgers & Beer, where the ambience is well-lighted-living-room, the burger special is an H.P Lovecraft pun, and the flat-screen televisions are more likely broadcasting pirated Edgar Wright flicks or Mythbusters. The clientele tilts more toward grad students arguing over the legality of Scrabble plays than bros pounding brewskis. Green Room doesn't do shots or fruity cocktails. What it does have is a low-priced craft-beer list as long as Star Wars' opening crawl, with rotating local taps and some brewed-on-site offerings you won't find elsewhere. Grab Settlers of Catan or Star Trek Monopoly from the board-game bookshelf and sidle up to the bar for good conversation and a malty microbrew. If you're lucky, the bartender will show you his latest con photos of his posing with the Shat.
