Tucked away at the Red Dragon Casino is an old-fashioned pub perfect for catching the game or recharging your firebreath reserves. Lined with high-definition televisions, the Dragon Zone Sports Bar & Grill matches its gourmet-level eats with hand-crafted microbrews such as Elysian IPA and specialty drinks such as a fruit-filled Seattle Mojo. During dinner, sports fans can tuck into American classics such as rib eye steaks and the signature mac 'n' cheese or Asian-inspired entrees such as the Mongolian beef bowl or spicy chili chicken.
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.
The founders of Salud Whisky & Wine Bar have turned their passion for spirits into a massive collection?one that includes more than 125 wines and 150 whiskies. The bar's inventory features products from around the globe, but focuses primarily on wines and whiskies that have been crafted or grown in Washington. Visitors can dip into both selections on a daily basis, all while soaking up recommendations from Salud's wine- and whisky-wise staff. They can also try out the bar's own barrel-aged cocktails: pre-mixed drinks that have gone through the same aging process as other distilled spirits in order to alter their character and flavor.
The Sounders crowd is especially energetic at this trio of pubs, where the English vibe is reinforced by lodge-style decor and a menu replete with fried fish, kidney pies, and chips with curry sauce. Dartboards more than make up for the lack of action when there’s no game on.
LaVonte Elegan may have a master's degree in business, but he isn't afraid to get his hands dirty for the sake of a clean carpet. Working alongside his wife, Breanne, LaVonte leads a staff of experienced technicians who attend courses and seminars to stay abreast of the latest cleaning tools and techniques. Their cleaning process starts with a HEPA vacuum to remove dry dirt particles before launching into a meticulous step-by-step regimen that extracts ground-in soil. LaVonte's techs then scour fibers with pet-safe products and a Rotovac machine, which cleans at speeds up to 250 revolutions per minute, leaving it about 20 times drier than cleaning it with a manual scrub wand or teasing it until it cries. Beyond carpet, the crew members at Glow Professional Home Cleaning Services also aim their green cleaning products and hot-water-extraction equipment at stains residing in tile and grout or upholstery.
Lucky 7 furnishes the simple pleasures of sports on TV, cold drinks, and hearty food, as well as entertaining activities in the form of dartboards and arcade games. More than 20 different beers are on tap, and diners feast on pub classics such as fish ‘n’ chips, third-pound cheeseburgers, and spicy-buffalo wings. As sports fans exchange a flurry of high-fives at the old-school varnished-wood bar, guests challenge each other to pinball matches or to rounds of pool at one of the game room's four pool tables.
