Essay question: Why should I drink here?  
Like a lot of downtown bars, Casey’s has two clienteles: the after-work happy hour seekers and the late-night partiers. Not all bars can give both crowds what they want, but Casey’s fills both bills with ease. The party-hearty types can fortify their fun with shots of all types, including a range of moonshine shots; the after-work drinkers can settle in with a basket of hot popcorn from the machine or enjoy “Free Food Fridays,” when catered snacks (wings, etc.) are brought in. In a space that the fire marshal says can hold just 49 people, things get friendly fast.
