Schooners forges a lively, welcoming atmosphere by hosting events throughout the week and employing an outgoing bar staff. General manager Megan Richards appeases neighborhood crowds by tuning the flat-screen and giant projection-screen TVs to football or UFC cage fighting as bartenders fill mugs with one of 25 ice-cold beers to pair with hearty burgers or wraps. Tall windows admit natural light into the roomy, red-walled bar, where diversions take the form of casual billiards showdowns, energetic music from live DJs, or toe-tapping karaoke. During trivia nights, minutiae-masters can claim victory based on their memorization of state capitals and knowledge of Shakespeare's unsuccessful attempts to pen instruction manuals for microwaves.
