Maza 14 has amazing Japanese fusion food. The hand rolls and happy hour specials are awesome.
My favorite local spot is Black Squirrel. It's a great sports bar with the most unique hamburger in town.
Nellie's Sports Bar - plenty of screens and every imaginable sports package will keep you connected to your favorite team.
Gravelly Point Park - a tiny park settled right on the end of the main runway at Airport; have a picnic or take a walk beside the river while watching the airplanes take off.
