Novak's Bar and Grill
Nancy Novak used to throw house parties for women's rugby and flag-football teams, providing an avenue for celebratory mingling after games. When she opened Novak's Bar & Grill in 1996, those parties found a new home. Music thunders over a dance floor, karaoke singers croon, and crowds flock to a marble bar for cocktails and beer. There's even a horseshoe toss and an outdoor stage for drag performances and bands. Cooks prepare a menu of burgers, sandwiches, and pizzas to keep energy levels high.
