The chatter that comes from friendly competition has a certain characteristic sound. That pleasant rumble often fills MVP's, where patrons might be battling their way through Halo 4, Tomb Raider, or one of 30 other Xbox 360 Games. Though it is an unorthodox sports bar, it is a sports bar nonetheless, so TVs will still be broadcasting all manner of athletic competitions, from football and baseball games to F1 racing and UFC matches. Netflix on personal Xbox consoles and monitors at tables emphasize that this isn't a typical watering hole, as does the menu, which includes churros with strawberries and drinks with names like "Zombie Killer." Those drinks pour freely during happy hour as well as events that include board-game nights and Super Smash Bros. tournaments.
Numbered balls ricochet across the green-felted pool tables at Olympic Billiards during regular open-play sessions and tournaments, their clacks creating a subtle rhythmic soundtrack. When not aiming pool cues or hiring a sheepdog to corral every ball except the eight ball, patrons can test their accuracy at dartboards and their timing at air-hockey tables. While playing, they sip on cocktails such as the incredible hulk, surfer on acid, or oatmeal cookie shot, or choose from 12 domestic, imported, and craft beers on tap. On the food menu, traditional pub bites mingle with Asian dishes such as gyoza, egg rolls, and spicy ramyun noodles.

One of four restaurants in the Neighborhood Grills restaurant group, Lake Forest Bar & Grill emits a warm, welcoming vibe that’s hard to ignore. Part of its charm boils down to its hearty grill food. Items such as bacon and blue-cheese burgers, honey-jalapeño barbecue-pork sandwiches, and 12-ounce steaks are washed down by fresh-squeezed margaritas and plenty of beer. And while the food is no doubt comforting, it’s the grill’s atmosphere that cements its reputation as a neighborhood spot. Soft lighting blankets the casual interior, where convivial chitchat mingles with cheers from the bar as customers root for the Seahawks to beat the 49ers. And when the weather permits, patrons can move the party to the outdoor patio, surrounded by towering trees and the warmth of a center fire-pit fueled by a friendly dragon.
