Brownie's Sports Bar & Tavern, located at 775 Oliver Street, has been open since June 2019. This new sports bar provides customers with mouthwatering appetizers and a variety of beer and well-known liquors. It's a great place to hangout with your friends and family while enjoying live entertainment and delicious food. One of the owners, Steven Brown, sat down with Lumber City Development Corporation so we could learn more about him and the business he runs with his wife, Lynda.
