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.

Given its signature touches, Sapphires Sports Bar & Grill is more of a biography than a bar. Green Bay Packers memorabilia speaks to owner Mike's affection for the team, as do the wings specials and festive gatherings on game days. Co-owner Charlene has likewise left her mark—each table is scattered with a variety of wine labels, the results of her years spent scouting for fine food and drink as a former Delta flight attendant. By putting their personal touches into the decor, the owners hope to invite guests into a memorable setting, and by employing several of their relatives, they strive to foster a warm, welcoming atmosphere around the venue's copper bar.

Beyond being a catalog of hobbies and hospitable staff members, Sapphires is also an homage to accessible gourmet. Its menu—inspired by a mix of timeless grill food and Charlene's gourmet tastes—surprises seasoned pub-goers with items such as the smoked-salmon pizza, a disk of rosemary focaccia adorned in capers, red onions, and bites of fresh fish. Even the list of 19 wing sauces denotes sophisticated cooking, dressing chicken in sweet-and-spicy plum, garlic thai, and bourbon-style marinades, instead of traditional flavors such as "smoke" and "yummy." Guests can compose signature burgers with made-from-scratch patties, or peruse the night's specials for examples of international recipes.

Brazilian Market touts hundreds of imported Brazilian culinary staples. Behind the meat counter, butchers slice picanha, or top sirloin, a cut popular in Brazilian rodìzio-style restaurants, and wrap up lombo recheado, pork stuffed with herbs and cheese. In addition to thick slabs of traditional Brazilian meats, Brazilian Market stocks goods such as South American coffee, tea, and coconut water. Customers can also shop for sundries such as Havaianas flip-flops and Brazilian hair products.
