Yes, the University District is a college town. But, maybe you’re not a college student, and your idea of a good time doesn’t involve choking down a blue slushie known as the “Adios, Motherf*cker.” Head to Floating Bridge, a lowkey brewery with tasty beer, hand shuffleboard, and a sweet collection of board games (they even have Codenames). You’d sooner find a couple of associate professors here than some rowdy fraternity brothers, and if you’re hungry, they have sandwiches from Brass Knuckle Bistro.
