A lengthy lineup of traditional game-day fare and a sports atmosphere captivate fans at Fox and Hound - Bailey's, where the kitchen remains open as late as its neighboring fully stocked bar. Chefs cook until the wee hours of the morning and always until the bar closes, baking Bavarian pretzel starters, crafting towers of onion rings, and preparing hand-battered chicken tenders that are cooked until they are golden brown. They blend their own seasonings to sprinkle over grilled-to-order burgers, and draw from a diverse roster of cheeses and toppings to crown their wood-oven-inspired flatbreads.
While manning the bars, bartenders tap into a stash of libations, such as UV Whipped vodka and Patron Silver tequila, to mix their specialty cocktails. To further foster a sporting ambiance, high-definition TVs glow with sports games and custom music-video playlists, and guests partake in pastimes of ump bashing, billiards, or competitive people watching.
The culinary architects at Moose Mango's erect a delectable menu of American staples and Tex-Mex treats. An appetizer of jalapeño corn fritters ($5.99) preps palates for incoming 10-inch invasions of handmade pizzas, including the bacon cheeseburger, which gives a meaty regime of bacon and beef full reign over jalapeños and a mustard base ($9.49), while the specialty Moose burger tempts thrill-seeking incisors with its carnivorous caverns of gargantuan topping options and haunted mine shafts ($8.49). The specialty beef or chicken fajitas, meanwhile, infuse taste buds with south-of-the-border succulence via a melding of sour cream, guacamole, pico de gallo, mexican rice, and refried beans ($13.49). Moose Magoo's also sates bread-based cravings with its selection of seven savory sandwiches, such as the croissant-hugged smoked turkey and swiss ($7.99) and the triple-decked Philly Moose steak ($7.89).
Steaming pots of crawfish etouffe and sizzling po' boy sandwiches wrapped around grilled gator or catfish race under diners' noses, their eyes upturned to the six flat screen telivisions that fortify Gator's Bayou's walls. The TVs only make a peep whenever a Texas team is playing or a mega-sporting event such as the super bowl rolls around. Otherwise, they remain active but silent, letting diners enjoy the music and Cajun-style eats on their own merits.
Renowned for its influence on the Texas wine industry, CapRock Winery also serves as a linchpin of gregarious fraternization with the return of its Comedy Night, when the expansive facility plays host to standup comedians tickling funny bones on both local and national circuits. Onsite entertainment gets a boost from the facility’s 11-foot, high-definition screen, professional sound system, and poetry-reciting grapes harvested fresh from the vineyard.
There are high-definition screens everywhere you look inside Nick's Sports Grill and Lounge. In addition to the 24 televisions that broadcast sporting events and knock-down-drag-out congressional hearings, a large projection screen hangs over a wooden bar where bartenders pour draft beers and more than a dozen wines. Behind the scenes, cooks whip up homemade chili and grill specialty burgers, such as the breakfast burger: a juicy patty capped in fried egg, bacon, and american cheese. For shareable meals, they also bake barbecue pizzas topped with chopped steaks and red onions.
Established in 1977, Copper Caboose delivers fresh Mexican dishes such as housemade guacamole and sizzling fajitas and American dishes such as charbroiled steak and smoked baby-back ribs to diners. The sports bar features six big-screen TVs as well as 11 booths each bedecked with its own private TV. Other entertainment options include twice-weekly Texas hold'em poker tournaments and free games pool until 7 p.m. every night.
