If you're badly in need of a classic and cozy neighborhood hang out, look no further.  The Moonlighter is the latest endeavor from the Scofflaw group, and this Logan Square spot is putting their focus on their beer and burger menu.  They offer a wide range of unique beers, and sours, and well as a cool cocktail menu.  And don't forget to check out their Portland Burger (vegan made with Beyond Burger).  It just opened this week, so get in while it's hot!
