La Peg is an American spot inside the Fringe Arts building right off Columbus Boulevard, and while it’s a perfectly good spot to grab a burger or a couple of beers during the winter, you really want to come during the summer. As soon as the weather gets nice outside, the patio turns into a beer garden, with lawn games and a shipping container that’s been repurposed into an outdoor bar.
