Pour us a pint, Brother Jon.

Those in the Galveston Avenue neighborhood - referred to as the "Parrilla District" by at least one Source staffer - got another watering hole option this week with the opening of Brother Jon's Public House.

Operating out of what was the short-lived Mahkanas on Galveston, Brother Jon's is a venture by Downtowner partner Stephen Barnette and fellow Deschutes pub alum John Machell (along with wife Kristen). Barnette calls Brother Jon's a "neighborhood pub" with a clean atmosphere, a full bar with choices of microbrews as well as the seemingly obligatory $2 PBR tall can. The menu is pub fare with nothing exceeding the $10 line, underlining the pub's focus on affordability. Having opened just Monday, Barnette says he's already noticed a come-one-come-all ethos to his pub.

"Yesterday a couple guys from down the street came by with a guitar and banjo and played out on the back patio. And we're fine with that sort of thing," said Barnette, adding that they also have cable sports packages.

  • Jackalope Grill's Women Tasting Wine is Awesome this Month

    Sometimes Bend is flush with dining events, making me wish I had buckets of cash to blow on food and wine. Actually, I pretty much always wish I had buckets of cash, but sometimes the desire is especially great.
