    The A House is Ptown's oldest gay bar and is littered with nautical artifacts, pieces of art, musical posters (Ella Fitzgerald used to sing there back in the day), and has a hearth that burns during the cold winters. It's open year-round and though it may not attract the trendiest DJs during the summer months it's still my favorite place to go out.

    This restaurant is in the most unique-looking building on Commercial Street covered on the outside with red neon. While it's something of a factory in terms of its culinary output - popular with tour groups and such, it's definitely the place to go if all you want is a traditional Cape Cod lobster dinner with drawn butter.

    One of the more upscale restaurants in town, it's definitely somewhere to have a "nice" meal. A clean, modern environment and windows that look out to Cape Cod Bay.

    This is a popular place for tea dance from 3-6. Right on the water. Some folks spend the afternoon there laying out on deck chairs which you can rent for a few bucks.
