Might want to try New Brunswick. It's only one town away, and there are a bunch of cool places there. Old Bay is a great restaraunt / brew pub with live jazz & blues. There's also a good comedy club called the Stress Factory. Marita's Cantina is a great Mexcian restaraunt, and there's a brew pub called Harvest Moon, I think.
There all with blocks of each other, either on or right off of George Street.
Just aim for Rutgers and anyone around should be able to give you directions.
