The crazy robot across the street? That's Joe's Cafe, Sculpture Garden, and Art Gallery—the creations of City Museum co-founder Bill Christman. He also happened to help curate our upstairs Airbnb's. If it's a Thursday night, see if there is a music show there, it will be an unforgettable experience. Usually Thursday nights, usually $10 at the door and bring your own food and drink.
