Forget the dimly lit awkwardness of some trendy club; dogs, basketball and beer are where it's at. West Alabama Ice House is pickup-spot perfection; there's a super-relaxed, anything-goes kind of vibe with a wide selection of beers and a crowd that seems to know what an icehouse should be. Everyone's friendly, and the crowd is about as diverse as it gets in this city, which is too awesome for words when you're lookin' for a potential hook-up. It's an easy place to meet people; think giant outdoor barbecue rather than bar, one where everyone's just hangin' out and drinkin' beer. And if you're still too shy to infiltrate the picnic table full of girls behind you, you can bring ol' Rover along and let him do the work for you.
