At lunchtime people come for the homemade soup, taco bar, and excellent sandwiches. I love the spinach and strawberry salad and the hot Black Forest sandwich. This year on the 30th of every month they charge 1977 prices on the original menu. $5 will get two people a full lunch.
LSB is a good place to watch sports. They have two large screen TVs that are perpetually tuned to sports. But it's a baseball bar so you'll have to wait til the Cardinals are done to get the Bears' game on. grumble grumble.
As a bar, LSB is a comfortable place to spend the evening. The wait staff is attentive and personable, appetizers are available until 10 pm, and they have several good beers on tap (Guinness, Bass, Stella, Goose Island). As a live music venue, LSB brings in consistently good music and the cover charge is usually low. LSB gives local bands a receptive audience that's hard to find elsewhere. It is also a frequent home for 56 Hope Road, whom you should make every effort to see live. Check out the 56 Hope Road blog here.
(I'm getting sidetracked but, 56 Hope Road and Ween will be at the Canopy Club in Champaign in October. 56! Ween! On the same night! How much fun will that be? TONS!)
