Join us at Liberty Station2101 Washington Ave, at 8 PM tonight to exercise responsibly our restored freedoms.  The tap list has great variety for its size, they have a bar full of certifiably-inspired mixed drinks, and if you’re hungry, there’s probably a food truck outside (you are free to brown bag it as well)
