There's always something happening this eclectic bar, from standup to trivia to karaoke. Theme nights run Monday–Saturday and draw a diverse and friendly crowd that sips microbrews while playing board games, swigs PBR while dancing the night away, or quaffs other adult libations out of the bar's rentable drinking horns. Two dartboards, a pinball machine, and a jukebox add a vintage element to the spot, and free WiFi keeps patrons connected to the present. Eastside Tavern does not serve food, but folks are encouraged to take advantage of the BYO eats policy.

The world as we know it has ended. The woods are now crawling with zombies and chainsaw-wielding madmen. There's a feeling of dreadful chaos in the air. This is the scenario presented by Day of the Running Dead, a 5K cross-country adventure laced with the threat of zombie attacks. Piles of hay bales, rope ladders, mud pits, and other obstacles along the course add a special challenge for those immune to the zombies' tricks or extra-afraid of dirt. So do the costumes that runners are encouraged to wear. Those who survive are invited to an after-party featuring food, drinks, music, and prizes for the top 10 costumes.
