The Green Room, for me, is all about drinks. The Pad Thai is yummy and people rave about the Brie, but for me, it's about the cheap wine and good, cozy conversation. Every once in awhile, I also head in their for their ultra-cheap breakfast, but in the light of day, it's just not the same. The GR is a night-time sort of place.Good for new dates, and deep convos. I've done some lavalife-ing there. It worked. Also, I find it's a good test of someone's character. If they're put off by the grunge, I know they're probably going to be too uptight for me.
There are things you hear about: rats, bad food preparation, etc. But don't heed the haters. If you're unsure just don't eat. Drink and be merry instead. Think of the 1960s. It's impossible not to.
