Satisfying meals and handcrafted beer intersect with premium sports viewing at Lamppost Pizza and Backstreet Brewery, founded in 1976 by Angelo Barro and his sons, Dan and Tom. Today, the franchise welcomes patrons to 37 locations in three states, and the philosophy remains the same at all of them. Seven big-screen TVs broadcast football, basketball, and baseball games from around the leagues to entertain patrons sipping small-batch draft beers brewed onsite. Fans munch on traditional sports-viewing snacks, such as jalapeño poppers, potato skins, and buffalo wings. Chefs also prepare heartier entrees including garlic-chicken pasta, Pesto Supreme pizzas covered with artichoke hearts, and The Linebacker, a pizza loaded with pepperoni, salami, ground beef, sausage, and two types of bacon.

Dr. Zhu first started studying Chinese medicine when he was a young boy growing up in Beijing. He graduated from the Beijing University of Chinese Medicine and became the orthopedic surgeon-in-charge at China-Japan Friendship Hospital. Dr. Hong Guang Xiang—a world-renowned Chinese physician—took notice of Dr. Zhu's skills and shared all his theories with the young doctor. After he came to America, Dr. Zhu shared his knowledge of orthopedics and tui na with students at Samra University of Oriental Medicine. Now the owner of Evergreen Health & Herbs, Dr. Zhu draws on more than 20 years of clinical experience and his knowledge of eastern and western techniques to treat ailments. In addition to acupuncture and acupressure, which redirect and rebalance the body's energy, he can also diagnose disease by simply taking a patient’s pulse or counting their blinks. Complimentary herbal teas with ginseng and jujube quench thirsty patrons while they wait.
