Traditional pubs served as community hubs, places to see neighborhood folks and combine the flow of information with the flow of taps. Finnegan's Irish Pub aims to recreate that same setting for a modern audience, serving friendly sandwiches, burgers, and Irish entrees with plenty of beer.

Rather than depending on word of mouth for their stream of news, the pub's staff instead bedecks the dining room with flat-screen televisions and projectors. Outside, a television screens bathe the patio in its technicolor light. And some of the indoor booths come with their very own TVs, ideal for quietly feeding your curling addiction while pretending to care about football.

Mouthwatering scents from traditional tagines trickle through the horseshoe arches of this Moroccan eatery, offering olfactory hints at dishes served up à la carte and family style. Make a bold beginning with a bastilla appetizer, a bastion of Moroccan fare filling thin phyllo dough with chicken or vegetables ($14.99, $24.99 for medium). Next, sink teeth into entrees of vegetarian and meaty varieties, such as the lamb tagine with raisins and almonds in a sweet sauce ($15.99) or vegetable-studded couscous ($12.99). Families, friends, or barbershop quartets can feed on Fez's family-style feasts, which include soup or salad, a bastilla, a tagine or couscous, dessert, and Moroccan mint tea (starting at $46.99). The bistro's bar is open late on weekends to accommodate nocturnal noshers.

At Fairouz Cafe, waiters ameliorate appetites with a menu of classic Middle Eastern dishes. Hummus bel-shawarma ($9.95) jump-starts eating engines with a serving of hummus topped by slices of beef and lamb, created by cracking a meat piñata over the plate. The chicken kebab platter unites marinated, boneless chicken cubes with rice ($11.95), and the falafel sandwich corrals fried chickpea patties into bellies ($5.95). Combo appetizer plates such as the yogurt salad with diced cucumbers ($3.50) or the shakshouky, an eggplant salad with diced tomatoes and pomegranate extract ($5.95), juxtapose simple ingredients to accentuate their flavor, much like PB&J sandwiches or barbershop quartets with one rapper. Escort meals to hunger-vanquishing glory on a cascade of nonalcoholic beverages such as juices and smoothies ($4.50) or a toasty pot of Turkish coffee ($3.95). During meals, diners can enjoy the smoky flavors of a hookah (not included with this Groupon), soak in live or DJed music, observe the sensual stylings of a belly dancer, or keep up with sports on wall-mounted televisions.

Fast Eddie's Sports and Billiards is the quintessential place to enjoy the game, offering plenty of TVs to watch, beers to drink, and foods to nosh. The selection of starters is diverse—as it includes kung pao shrimp, nachos, and Tex-mex spring rolls—as are the three varieties of sliders. Heartier fare varies from wild-caught salmon with sauteed veggies to a 12-ounce ribeye paired with mashed potatoes to the 1520 Club sandwich stacked with ham, turkey, and applewood bacon. The bar's namesake dish is the Big Eddie, two 100% Angus beef patty that can be topped with anything from chili and jalapenos to bacon and barbecue sauce, otherwise known as "juice" in the South.
