Alcoholics Assemble: Gainesville Bar Update Open Thread/Suggestions

So here's the story: I graduated from UF three years ago and have only been back two times since - the first time i came away with a happy memory (UF baseball beating Miami to advance to the Super Regionals), and the second not so much (last year's LSU debacle). But this weekend I, like the prodigal son, will be returning for the Homecoming game against Vandy, along with Gator Growl, etc. The problem is that I'm a bit rusty on the Gainesville bar scene. Thus I'm soliciting your suggestions for where to go on Friday night for a good time, and Saturday afternoon/evening to watch the Bama-LSU game. 

When I lived there, I did most of my drinking (and there was a lot of it) at Salty Dog when I was Midtown and Stubby's or Lillian's when I was Downtown. I'm fairly sure all three of these are still alive and kicking, but are there any new ones I should know about? I'm sure The Swamp will be absolutely packed on Saturday night, so watching the game there might be a bit of a clusterfuck. Also, I'm a bit of a beer snob (hence the Stubby's), but not obnoxiously so, so keep that in mind (i.e., I'd like a place that I can get a good beer). I know Stubby's was expanding around the time I left; what's it look like now? 

I'm relying on you drunkards out there to guide me in the right direction. I'll be coming with a girl that went to a small liberal arts school in Northeast for undergrad, so she'll be of no use. Have at it!

Please be kind and use good grammar.
