After putting out the call on Google + I got a bunch of great responses to my post on Tavern Dice Games. Here are the links.

Liar's Dice/Perudo is a good tavern dice game. I've played it in the bar multiple times. Just google it and you can find the rules. Each player will need 5d6 and a cup to shake and hide them behind.

A good tavern dice game is "Ship, Captain, Crew". Just Google it to find the rules, it's easy to learn. We were taught the game while having dinner at one of the Colonial Williamsburg taverns, it was a lot of fun.

Pit Fight" is pretty simple:
You roll three dice and multiply the numbers by each other. Whoever scores highest wins the round. Most people hate this game because the maths involved reveals everyone to be crap at maths, except for that one person. But it sharpens you up and after a few rounds you get into it, you start seeing the patterns in the numbers.
