The light from 10 plasma-screen televisions illuminates the autographed NBA jerseys covering the walls of Blue Jay Bar and Grill. The downtown-area watering hole draws in more than sports lovers, though—cheerily belted tunes fill the air during karaoke on Thursdays, tickling the eardrums of guests playing Keno. A spacious outdoor deck juts out into the summer air, overlooking a bustling volleyball court, as servers dole out Jose Cuervo margaritas or voodoo punch from a tap. Inside, comfortable couches cradle patrons in an Irish-style poker room nestled together near an old-wood oak bar.
A menu of pizza, wings, and libations sustains patrons as they flit from one room or activity to the next, clutching pints of Fat Tire or buckling down to feast on two-for-one burgers. Live music, played by live people or self-aware robots, occasionally wafts in from the street next to the bar.
