Anyone who's ever been on a bar crawl with a group of friends is familiar with the "Drunk Munchies", which has been shortened to "Drunchies". Every friend group has their own Robin Scherbatsky, the one who is constantly asking if you can stop for food (full disclosure: I'm the Scherbatsky of my friend group). The Scherbatskys of the world often end up looking like this:

Luckily, if you're bar crawling in downtown Laramie, there are several options for every appetite.

    Whether you're craving savory or sweet, Lovejoy's might be the place for you. In addition to their delightful appetizers, they have a full selection of burgers and hot dogs to satisfy the pub food craving. My personal favorite menu item, though? Their skillet cookie, usually served with a scoop of salted caramel ice cream.

    Sweet Melissa's

    The best place for those who enjoy vegetarian and vegan style foods, but with a menu that can appeal to meat eaters as well. The local favorite seems to be their cashew queso, but the cauliflower wings would be a perfect meatless alternative to those late night buffalo wing cravings.

    Born in a Barn

    For those that would like some chicken wings, there is no place like Born in a Barn. With a menu that ranges from traditional Buffalo sauce to the strange (but tasty) PB&J wings, there's a sauce for everyone, and burgers for those who don't want to feel the heat.

    Coal Creek Tap

    While this may seem like an unconventional choice, since most Laramie residents know Coal Creek for their coffee (or for their beer at Coal Creek Tap), the establishment has a wide selection of pastries to help satisfy a sweet tooth, or for those looking for a more savory option, their pretzels might just hit the spot.

    The Library

    Last, but certainly not least is that favorite hangout of UW students, The Library. Although it's slightly out of the way compared to the rest of the locations on the list, it's still worth visiting. To accommodate the crowd, the restaurant even has a late night menu that seems to be specifically designed for those suffering from the drunchies.
