Highline transforms hearty, messy, classic bar eats into equally tasty vegan versions and pairs them with a bevy of brews and specialty cocktails made from house-made, flavor-infused spirits. The meat-free menu replaces game with vegetable-based equivalents made in the Highline kitchen, ensuring that not a single animal or animal cracker is harmed in the making of each meal. Munch on stacked comestibles including the reubender ($8), stocked with thin-sliced house-made vegan pastrami, sauerkraut, vegan provolone and russian dressing on rye, or the tempesto ($10), a flavor-storm of smoky bacon-style tempeh, avocado, lettuce, tomato, onion, and a tidal wave of house-made pesto on grilled rye bread. More than 20 varieties of beer ($3+) lie in wait behind the bar, while signature cocktails enliven tongues with spirits infused with flavors such as lavender, vanilla, orange, strawberry, amateur journalism, and basil. The High On Fire margarita ($8) lights up tequila with a habanero infusion, and the Orange Goblin ($8) haunts glasses with vanilla-orange-infused bourbon, Luxardo cherry liqueur, and Navan liqueur.

The name means "the intimate" in Swedish, and it's a name that fits. Whether it's a production of a American classic, a world masterpiece, or a bold new work, shows at the Intiman aim to close the gap between performer and audience for an immersive experience. Founded by Fulbright Scholar Margaret Booker in 1972, the Intiman Theatre has developed a reputation for excellence with its impeccable stagecraft and contributions to the community, even winning a 2006 Tony Award for Outstanding Regional Theatre. And, serving as the crown jewel in a crown full of achievements, the Intiman was also the very first regional theater to stage a production of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Angels in America saga.
