Parenting is hard work, so you moms and dads are entitled to the occasional cold one. But you can't always get a sitter, and in most bars your fellow patrons make you and your rugrats feel about as welcome as Donald Trump at a Los Tigres del Norte concert. Fortunately, the brewmasters at Golden Road have created an environment in which drinkers and kindergarteners can happily co-exist. The pub's expansive patio overlooks a grassy area filled with games for adults and children alike, from foosball to cornhole to a giant Connect Four set. Parents can keep a watchful eye on the little ones while knocking back a pint of Point the Way IPA and ordering something from the kids' menu, which even includes vegetarian options. The grown-up food is pretty tasty, too, especially the spicy pulled pork sandwich and the fried avocado tacos, which you can wash down with a rotating selection of 20 beers on tap.
