After races at the Red Mile we go set on the sidewalk. Only ate snacks, but that wasn't the point. It is just fun to drink & converse with people walking on the sidewalk.

The breeze perfects the bar seating. Beers are fairly cold and bartender s are fairly attentive. This is a great place to grab a beer on a warm autumn​ afternoon. Guac and chips are plentiful and very good.
