3.       Doughnut Time: Yes, it's a hole in the wall about the size of your wardrobe, and yes it produces the best doughnuts you'll ever taste. Head to the original window on Alfred St.

4.       The Zoo: Not one with animals, but it can get as wild as one. The Zoo is a popular live music venue and always a fun time.
