This is a great place to hit if you've been up all night and are in desperate need of lots of food. Mornings they serve a three-egg breakfast for $3 and some change, and of course you can get a Bloody Mary to go along with it. The rest of the menu is made up of solid burger-style grub that goes down easy with one of Katie's many, many beers on tap.
Formerly indie destination acme, Plan B has a decidedly more heavy metal vibe (at least as far as the staff goes) The space is wood paneled with some booths, a nice stage/dance floor area and a large bar dominates. In warmer months, large widow panels open onto one of the biggest patios on town. The menu consists of more-or-less fancified bar food.
Rockin’ downtown music venue with an eclectic clientele (read: bike messengers). Great place for people watching. The Ash Street serves a mean drink but deep fried appetizers, burgers, and sandwiches will soak up that booze for you.
It's a good space with a great atmosphere with a stage/venue side, a lounge side and a huge patio. They serve pretty darn good bento for cheap at lunch, among other things. Check 'em out for dinner too.
As in: If you're not "in the know," you're not there. Indie art gallery, live music venue, and screening room. They serve bottled beer only but that doesn't deter young hipsters "in the know" from packing the joint.
