I asked this in the discuss your law school thread but it was lost in a battle about something or other - What are some restaurants/bars close to campus I should visit while I'm in Bloomington next week ?
You should be sure to at least get a drink at Nick's. Hopefully you'll have time for a few games of sink the biz.
Other good bars include Upstairs, Kilroy's on Kirkwood, the Bluebird, and the Vid. You can't really find a bad restaurant even if you try. Just walk up Kirkwood or Fourth St. and take your pick of terrific ethnic fare. Everything is good. Essan Thai and Shanti (Indian) are my personal favorites. If you want a great cut of meat: Janko's Little Zagreb. Smokin' Jack's Rib Shack is THE bbq joint. And there's a whole host of sushi options throughout town.
I think you'll find that one of Bloomington's most attractive features is its dining/drinking opportunities. Endless and delicious.
