RAZZY'S | 585 Somerville Avenue, Somerville | A dive bar doesn't have to have trivia nights and karaoke to make the grade, but it sure does help. Razzy's has learned this lesson well.
THE SILHOUETTE | 200 Brighton Avenue, Allston | Pro: this place has Big Buck Hunter. Con: one online reviewer reports that "the gun is always greasy." Well, that's the price you pay for free popcorn. Let no one say the Swillo is no-frills.
THE SLIGO PUB | 237 Elm Street, Somerville | There's been a pub standing at the spot where the Sligo is for more than 70 years. With God willing, the Sligo itself — and all the other blue-collar bastions like it across Greater Boston — will still be standing 70 years from now.
