Your camping trip got cancelled - turns out that trying to pitch a tent in the pouring rain is wildly counterproductive. Once you’ve dried off, head to The Noble Fir, a bar that feels a lot like a cabin hideaway in the mountains. A cabin hideaway with string lights, beer, wine, delicious charcuterie and cheese plates, and a library area full of old books, that is. Not to mention a bathroom, which is more than we can say for that campsite your friends picked out.
