What are some great Ocean City bars?

It's hot and heavy out, and I'm hoping to get downy ocean here soon.

I only get to Ocean City once a year -- sometimes even less than that. And every year, I wonder what bars I should be hitting up.

I went to Seacrets. Once.

After a few drinks, I got lost inside the sprawling, sandy party zone and spent a good chunk of the night trying to find my friends.

I did run into a dude wearing a T-shirt with the words "Suck it" on it, with an arrow pointing to his crotch. Tactful.

I've also stopped by the Purple Moose Saloon, which was a little worn around the edges, but still fun ...

And I've hung out at the Greene Turtle, another classic OC party spot.

But I wanna know: Where are the non-touristy (or just plain cool) OC bars? I know they exist. Where are they?

I need names, people, and quick -- my coworker Jill wants to do an article on OC nightlife. She's headed down there this weekend for just that very reason.

Rehobeth, Dewey Beach and Bethany Beach count too.

So fill us in.
