Brown's Towne Lounge, stays true to the McMenamin's standard. I appreciate the Ninkasi beer on tap, their events, local involvement, live music, and the "pub grub". The interior offers an open feeling with a nice sidewalk view from the tables, and a large-screen television over the bar. In addition, they have some great happy hour deals.
N and I sat back and enjoyed the lively chatter of friends getting together, while we sipped our Ninkasi Believer Double Red and shared an order of mac & cheese and a chef salad. Sometimes it's all about the fine, white tablecloth and sometimes it's not.
