Walking Directions to Downtown Johnny Brown’s from the Convention Center: [5]

It may be very busy until 8pm or so, as they get an early rush of people from the civic theater next door. But the place should empty out after 8pm. This is not a free beer or food thing, but they have plenty of both for purchase. And bring a jacket- the harbor breeze makes downtown chilly at night.
