Now that you've mastered the first half of being a pool hustler (hiding the fact that you're good at pool), you'll need to master the second and some would say more important half (actually being good at pool). Today's deal will get you there, and makes sure you won't get there hungry: for $10, you get $20 worth of American pub fare and drinks at Side Pockets in Lenexa. Today's Groupon also gets you free pool on any of Side Pockets' 25 tables from 10 p.m. until 1 a.m. (typically $8 per hour per table), so you can practice your bridge shot with the quiet encouragement of comfort foods and quality beers whispering to your brain.
Jerzes pairs its plentiful pours with simple, unpretentious bar fare replete with delicious house-made preparations. Warm up a stiff palate with a few pre-dinner stretches of dragon wings, which are 10 jumbo wings served au naturel or tossed with mild, hot, barbecue, Buff-a-Que, or Stupid Hot sauce ($7.75). Much to the delight of visiting herbivores and healthy eaters, an all-you-can-eat soup and salad bar ($6.50) delights a lighter appetite with fresh trimmings daily. Bread-and-meat specialists can partner tall, frosty drafts with hearty sandwiches and eight signature burgers, all served with hand-cut fries. The Big Party Burger is a monument to bovine splendor, its cow-meat patty swathed in shaved prime rib, melted provolone, and horsey sauce ($9.25), while the Patriots Ultimate BLT ($6.95) or the buffalo-style Chieftain Chicken sandwich ($7.25) are sure to please pundits of pork and poultry. Overeager eaters can unclog gullet pipes with one of six on-tap domestic and imported beers or a less-malty glass of wine.
Omaha Performing Arts brings world-class entertainment to its two distinct but complementary venues. Built in 1927 as a vaudeville palace, the fully remodeled Orpheum Theater evokes the gilded concert halls of Europe with magnificent chandeliers; gracefully vaulted ceilings; and intricate, decorative metalwork. The newly built Holland Performing Arts Center surrounds the action with modernist elegance, featuring clean, geometric lines and a lobby with floor-to-ceiling glass windows. The main Peter Kiewit Concert Hall's gently curving shoebox design ensures clear sightlines and comfortable feet, and organically placed wooden panels sharpen the acoustics and bestow the space with a warm glow.
The owners of Brewsky’s Food & Spirits know that the best way to get friends and family together is to create a vibrant space filled with live music, all the best sporting events on TV, frosty brews, and a menu of comfort foods. While taking pride in being the spot to gather for Huskers games, as well as all other major sporting events, the owners also take immense satisfaction in serving a selection of juicy steaks, flame-broiled burgers, and wings that their chef concocted exclusively for the restaurant. The team also entertains patrons with trivia nights and shows such as dueling pianos or quarreling xylophones at the Haymarket location.
One of a family of comedy clubs serving as key laugh generators in more than 25 cities, Funny Bone sits in the shopping and entertainment hub of Village Pointe Center. Luminaries such as Drew Carey, Jim Breuer, and Dave Chappelle have all taken the stage in front of audiences enjoying drinks and the bounty of a large food menu stocked with sandwiches as thick a first-grader's favorite book of knock-knock jokes, sweet potato fries, and wings doused in a signature blueberry-habañero sauce.
At Oasis Hookah Bar, couches, a circular bar and a combination of cocktails, drinks, and hookah work together to create a relaxed environment. Customers can breathe in the chilled air of a large variety of shishas, taking in flavors such as berry, blueberry grape, lemon tea, or even varieties without tobacco. Meanwhile, they can sip on a number of drinks, such as whiskeys, sodas, or cocktails.
Traditions, formerly known as Indigo Joe's, maintains a devotion to large frosty brews, colossal dishes, and the art of displaying gentlemanly brutes on multiple screens. Their 49 high-definition TVs show all the popular sports, and Traditions provides a radio at every table in case you need to hear your event's play-by-play or Coach Roosevelt's halftime fireside chats. The comfortable cushioned chairs pamper posteriors during marathon clashes, and there’s a bulked-up bar-food menu. Hulking specimens may wish to try the onion rings with barbecue sauce ($7) or the juicy bacon cheeseburger ($9), which comes in a half-pound slab of certified Angus beef. Wash it down with the monolithic 34-ounce beer, served from an extensive bar that features 20 beers to wet all frequencies of whistle.
The imbibing buccaneers of Rum Runner Lounge & Eatery slake their guests' hunger with a menu of pub favorites and a menagerie of mixed drinks.

Four pieces of the Captain's Favorite Broasted Chicken ($9.25) rest upon similarly broasted potatoes and expertly uncooked coleslaw. A brick-walled hearth surrounded by leather chairs warms visitors as they sip on the bar's signature Rum Runner ($6), a cocktail mixed with Bacardi Select rum from a secret recipe that only one easily hypnotizable bartender knows.
Lit Lounge beefs up traditional tapas with muscular spices and sauces that sedate even the most rapacious appetites. The candied coconut jumbo shrimp ($17) offers a laconic discourse on sweet versus savory, with sweet mango chutney set against a deep-fried crust and cashew vinaigrette. Specialty libations ($9–$11) longing to cleanse palates with tiny, delicious towels include carb-conscious skinny margaritas and the X Pop Rock, whose trio of strange liquors tangos with a smattering of Sprite. Small plated portions of chicken spring rolls ($8) satiate groups with highlights of chili sauce and curry aioli. Party-ready ranks can take advantage of Lit Lounge’s socially stimulating atmosphere, in which mood lighting casts seductive shadows on couples nestling in intimate booths or playing aggressive games of footsie to determine who pays for dinner.
The extensive menu at Clancy’s offers filling pub fare for lunch and dinner.

Try the jumbo tenderloin sandwich ($7.99), with a deep-fried pork loin slumbering in a bun bed, or Clancy’s classic corned-beef sandwich ($6.99), sure to evoke memories of long days in the kiting fields of Kilkenny. Plated portions of the beer-battered fish and chips ($9.49) or the classic chicken-fried steak ($7.99) promise to please even the most discerning diner, while a meal-concluding slice of Clancy’s Bailey’s Irish Cream cheesecake ($4.99) offers a stomach-warming conclusion to the meal.
Eschewing fancy trappings for a simple, everybody's-welcome atmosphere, The Foundation's lurid neon lights, exposed brick, and oak-beamed ceiling are a means to an end—and that end is the bar's 25 beers on tap and 100+ bottled varieties. Say the word and The Foundation's bartenders will slice off a frothy cut of Fat Tire, Goose Island, Skinny Dip, or Boulevard Ale and magically capture its thundering majesty inside a pint glass ($4). Or venture further into the realm of crafts and imports with a bottle of Purple Haze, Saint Bridget's, or Summit Pale Ale. To offset the usual side effect of carbonated beverages––weightlessness––a hearty menu of classic pub grub will keep you tethered to earth. Pre-game for the Huskers with an avalanche of Foundation nachos ($7.95, or keep one hand open for celebrating touchdowns by munching on an Omaha Reuben ($7.59), served with a side of fresh-cut fries ($8.59 with fries). Gamblers who are short on cash after foolishly taking the long odds against the sun rising tomorrow can find solace in the Cheapskate (two sliders and fries, $3.99).
Anthony’s offers a range of cuts, all hand-selected, Certified Premium Black Angus slabs of beef. Anthony’s dry-aged steaks are aged for at least 21 days to offer a superior concentration of flavor as well as a tender beef that’s succulent enough to cut through with a dull spoon. The meticulous meat preparation is a tradition that reflects the restaurant’s 42-year history. The welcoming setting emanates the elegance and casual comfort of a tuxedo T-shirt and encourages all meat-lover and meatless-lover friends to unite.
Two Fine Irishmen's grub gurus bedeck plates with a menu of hearty sandwiches and pizza and tap masters fill chalices with imported and domestic imbibables amid the jovial din of live music, billiards, and darts.

Then treat tongues to an authentic taste of cowboy life aside from horse-flavored breath mints with a half-pound western burger that's saddled with barbecue sauce, american cheese, and an onion ring ($8.97). Savants of spherical spreads can bolster their vampire-repellant powers with a Masek’s pizza, a pie sporting grilled chicken, mushrooms, and tomatoes cavorting in a font of garlic-butter sauce ($13.97 for 12", $15.97 for 16"). Wash down your banquet with a selection from the cache of brews, such as Smithwick’s or Lucky Bucket.
The newly remodeled and reincarnated Goldeez invites patrons to sample an array of ales and lagers at one of its Monday-night beer tastings. The Goldeez brewmeisters cull an ever-changing eight-dram cross-section for connoisseurs to connoisseur on as the knowledgeable bar staff takes tongues on a thirst-quenching journey. Palate pilgrimages start with a light beer, such as a Corona, travel down the spectrum from Agave Wheat to ales including Hazed & Infused and Fat Tire, and finally traverse into the darkness of porters and extra stouts. Groupon redeemers can keep the party going well into Tuesday morning with a take-home six-pack built from their favorite brew of the eight tasted that night.
