The Dirty Shame pub is open six days a week, serving car bombs and other libations to bikers and other thirsty patrons. The "Pub on the Edge" features weekly special events, such as Bike Nights and has been known to team up with other unique bars to host themed pub crawls. Not surprisingly, smoking is permitted, so as the night wears on, the floor tends to get sticky and the air gets stuffy. Still, this offbeat bar is a favorite to many, thanks to its rugged atmosphere, wide beer selection and, of course, the car bombs.
