Come express your inner lumberjack. Come mingle fireside in the airy semidarkness. With '60s- and indie-soul suffusing the barroom, Rontoms offers a downtempo retro vibe accentuated by twinkly candlelight reflections dancing across lustrous surfaces. If, after a pilsner or Miller High Life, you're craving sustenance, chow down on some deviled eggs ($3) or a French dip with Swiss cheese and horseradish aioli ($7). Grab another Miller to curb the sting in your nostrils. Amble out to the capacious back patio to soak in the ambient garrulity. Sip your Miller with savor, rinse and repeat. Optional items: beanie and lenseless glasses.
