Wind down Parkcenter Boulevard to the very end, and there's a surprise waiting. Sandwiched between giant mansions and perfectly manicured lawns is a Stepford shantytown known as Bown Crossing. Skip the candy shop and exotic pet store for the best bar crawl outside of downtown. Grab a beer at Flatbread Community Oven, a martini at The Tavern at Bown Crossing, another beer at Kessler's, a margarita at Casa Mexico and a glass of wine at the Tavern Wine Market, and you'll have to catch an ambulance home. Or, you know, you can pay slightly less money for a cab back to your 'hood.
