Drinks & Nightlife
There's a wonderful little upstairs place called "Conspiracy" that serves craft cocktails and basic, delicious bar nosh. It will bring you back to the Roaring '20's. Unique and fun. You could also go bar-hopping up and down Main Street. And if you like really good beer and an amazing selection of it, don't miss out on the opportunity to go to Eli Cannon's. Trust me. It's worth it. Great bar food and even better beer. Incredible restaurants, too, all ranging in price, and every genre you can think of. Walkable streets, unique shopping opportunities, and ample parking.
