Lulu Stevens hopes Ryan’s Public House takes third place in people’s hearts. No, that’s not third place as in the third-best choice or option. It’s a concept in larger cities in which maybe there’s a pub on one corner and a grocery store on another. It’s the concept that home is first place and work is second place. The third place offers an escape from those other places and a way for civic engagement.
