Alex's: Day or Night Good Bar and Restaurant
Alex is a tooth gap, with heavy black frame glasses, and hat sort of guy who runs a good crew of handsome and capable waiters and waitresses in a popular local hangout. The building is right between Calle Guanajuato and Lithia Plaza, with second story views of each. The balcony on the plaza side is a great place to view the annual 4th of July parade, while drinking a beer of course. The upstairs bar is old wood and everything about the woodframe structure is half polished and original architecturally. Inside there's overstuffed furniture and a fireplace. In back, a balconey overlooks Calle Guanajuato and Ashland Creek. The restaurant service at night inside provides a healthy eclectic mix menu familiar to those living on the west coast of the USA.

Omar's: Death Avenger Headquarters
Traditional night spot of the American Band College, and official bassoon fingering study/rehearsal room for the Death Avengers Drum & Bugle Corps. Very smoky atmosphere.
Dress Code: Informal. Whatever you wear will smell of smoke for the next few days, so choose wisely.
Oregon Shakespeare Festival: Live Professional Theatre
Tony Award winning regional repertory theatre. Their season runs from February through October, featuring everything from Shakespeare to world premiere modern plays.
Dress Code: Almost anything goes. I've seen people show up in formal attire or Elizabethan costumes, but mostly people dress very casually, as they do for all other Ashland activities.
