Friendly barkeeps at Bubbaz Bar & Grill distribute domestic beers and plates of hot burgers, pizzas, wings, and sandwiches in a casual, activity-packed sports bar. A menu of fried and grilled fare fills bellies with classics such as the Philly chicken sandwich with swiss cheese, grilled onions, and a side of fries each shaped like a different ward of Philadelphia (a $6.50 value). The California chicken wrap swaddles marinated chicken alongside red peppers and avocados, sweetening the mélange with sliced cucumber (a $6 value), and a 7-ounce sirloin steak roosts over potato skins, mixed veggies, and garlic bread. After dinner, revelers linger to sip suds and shoot pool or watch wide-screen TVs engage in athletic competition. Patrons can plan ahead for weekly activities such as the Texas Hold ‘Em tournament on Mondays, a beer pong marathon on Tuesdays, karaoke on Wednesdays, and DJ beats on weekends.

The grill at Mayday sizzles and pops as cooks forge a menu of hot dogs, gourmet sausages, and homemade sides. All-beef morsels from the Avril-Bleh & Sons meat market are crafted with the epicurean thoughtfulness of a valentine from an oompa loompa and serve as mouthwatering canvasses for artful dogs. The Mayday dog wears house-crafted spicy mustard pajamas while bouncing gleefully on a warm pretzel-bun mattress alongside caramelized onions and grilled peppers ($7.00). Choose a gourmet dog foundation ($7.25), such as chorizo or kielbasa, and pile on toppings ($1 each) that include house apricot ketchup, beer cheese, or a miniature Lamborghini. Noodles ford warm rivers of golden cheese, dodging crusty pretzel breadcrumbs in the restaurant's macaroni and cheese ($4).

Seven flat-screen TVs and a 92-inch projection screen thrill patrons with basketball and football games, and darts and karaoke keep patrons busy on various nights throughout the week while their outside deck accommodates fair-weather revelry.
