The neon sign above the bar reads, "You Can't Go Home Until You Stop at First Base." With its friendly staff, variety of diversions and comprehensive refreshment list, First Base makes that stop easy. The site of many pool and dart leagues, First Base can host some hot competition. Neighborhood crooners can even test their pipes every Thursday night in a karaoke contest. Saturday night offers a deejay who spins plenty of high-energy cuts to keep the crowd moving. First Base is a large, airy bar with plenty of seating in the high-ceilinged front room. The bar accommodates about 20, with more tables throughout, seating large, laughing groups of friends and fans. The back room holds the pool and darting areas. First Base's elegant back bar and black-and-white checkered floor are likely original appointments, kept from the building's turn-of-the-century construction.
