If you happen to ask where, exactly, the Wash is, a giddy bartender is likely to give you the answer: unincorporated Adams County. That hazy zone suits the joint just fine, as it toes the line between sports bar, dive, dance joint and billiards room. Whatever your pleasure, the Wash -- so named for its location on Washington Street -- offers a happy hour Tuesday through Saturday with specials on pitchers, bottles, drafts and wells. (There isn't really food at the joint besides the odd bar-pizza company that pops up at places like this.) So, ahem, wash it all down at the long bar and consider yourself lucky enough if that same bartender gets all Shaq Fu and dunks your tip in the large bucket that hangs overhead.
