Don't let the floral shrubs covering the front of this Palm Desert spot fool you -- this place is for heavy music and heavy drinkers. The always-stacked event schedule at this local dive mostly consists of underground punk and hard rock acts, but there's other stuff to be seen, too, like video game tournaments and the occasional stand-up comedy gig. New York-style pizza dominates the menu, but there's also a handful of bar favorites like wings and mozzarella sticks (not to mention a large selection of cheap domestic drafts).
