So I am spending the night at my parents' house in Brea because I am leaving for Wisconsin with my dad early tomorrow morning. My dad went to bed at like 9:30, and I was like, "What do I do now? What is there to do in Brea?" So I decided to walk to the Yard House and get a beer.
The only thing the Yard House has going for it is its massive beer selection. Other than that, the Yard House is super duper lame. They play this generic classic rock, and you feel like you're in a goddamn Cheesecake Factory. I sat alone at the bar, drinking my Stone Porter, watching a sporting event I was completely indifferent to, and thinking--Downtown Brea is fucking lame.
I miss downtown Fullerton. I miss the Continental--where there is good music, interesting people, and a decidedly non-corporate vibe. Downtown Brea has a VERY corporate vibe, which makes it almost completely devoid of character. Fullerton may not be the coolest city in the world, but at least it has character.
MORAL: Avoid Downtown Brea like the plague.
