    All you beer loving yogis: don't miss out on Sunday yoga. It's donation based, and finishes up right at noon so you can grab a beer afterwards. Be sure to get there early though, it fills up quick.

    Love getting the half pints ($2 each!) and sampling different brews. The bourbon beer is fantastic - and so is the people watching. If you're hungry, hit up the food trucks.
