Walk into any of BreWingZ Sports Bar and Grill's 19 locations, and you'll be faced with many decisions. First, of course, is the food: the sports bar's crisp, juicy wings come in more than 25 different sauce flavors from classic suicidal hot to orange ginger. The mozzarella cheese sticks are carved from a cheese brick, breaded, and fried to order. And then there are the salads, sandwiches, burgers, and wraps. The family-friendly restaurant even gives kids an extensive selection with six child-friendly dishes, some of which include the same signature items their parents enjoy. But once you've ordered your food, there are a few more dilemmas: Which of the plentiful beers do you choose? Which game on the many massive HD televisions do you watch? Which one is the fork, again? Luckily, the spot's easygoing atmosphere and bounty of entertainment doesn't quite necessitate speedy decision making.

Upon their arrival, visitors to Crescent Moon Wine Bar and Restaurant will be faced with a difficult decision?they'll have to decide on a wine. The extensive list spans more than 300 selections available by the glass or bottle. Then they'll have to select something to nibble on, perhaps the beef short ribs slow cooked in a Shiner Bock gravy or the filet-and-shrimp surf 'n' turf accompanied garlic truffled mashed potatoes.

And the whole time, they'll be distracted by their impressive surroundings, including stone-arches soaring high above them, stone walls, and a stage where live bands play nearly every day of the week. In front of this stage is an open space, and they'll have to decide if they want to dance here alongside the couples or organize a game of Freeze Tag.

In America, playing sports is almost as much of a national pastime as eating while watching other people play sports. Sam's Bar & Grill facilitates the latter with TVs aplenty, a menu of comfort food, and frosty pint glasses. While the bartenders serve up draft beer and margaritas, the chefs cook burgers and foot-long hot dogs atop the grill. They also whip up a number of shareable appetizers, including homemade onion rings and the eatery?s signature plate of fries, topped with bacon bits, gooey cheese, jalapenos, chives, and ranch dressing.

On select nights, however, the TVs defer to DJs. From their high-tech rig in the corner of the bar, they compose mixes and encourage guests to dance, or at least play rhythmic games of Duck, Duck, Goose.

Some things just go together: peanut butter and jelly, spaghetti and meatballs, two examples and a third thing. Coffee and craft beer rarely fall into this group. For one, they’re typically served at opposite ends of the day. But Down House uses this fact to its advantage, serving direct-trade, locally roasted coffee to early birds and dozens of beers and specialty cocktails to those who trickle in later on. Because the menu is based on local, seasonal ingredients, there’s no telling what it will look like on any given day—the Texas-tinged breakfast dishes and internationally inspired lunch and dinner selections change regularly— but hamburger fans can rest assured that their favorite sandwich is the lone item that’s constantly featured.

The pub portion of BRC Gastropub in the Heights is well represented, thanks to some 28 craft beers on tap along the bar, plus dozens of other varieties held below in bottles. There’s also a wine list as thick as an uncut slab of bacon, making the libations a focal point for this funky, red-printed space, where hanging lights loom low over high-top tables and a back patio offers simple communal seating. For fans of bacon – and who isn’t? – BRC’s “gastro” side serves housemade bacon jam that’s perfect for slathering on biscuits, while hefty hamburgers, a meatball mac ‘n’ cheese and unrestrictive milkshakes are enough to make any calorie counter sweat. Add a growler of local craft beer and call it a meal – or several meals in one.
