Eschewing fancy trappings for a simple, everybody's-welcome atmosphere, The Foundation's lurid neon lights, exposed brick, and oak-beamed ceiling are a means to an end?and that end is the bar's 25 beers on tap and 100+ bottled varieties. Say the word and The Foundation's bartenders will slice off a frothy cut of Fat Tire, Goose Island, Skinny Dip, or Boulevard Ale and magically capture its thundering majesty inside a pint glass ($4). Or venture further into the realm of crafts and imports with a bottle of Purple Haze, Saint Bridget's, or Summit Pale Ale. To offset the usual side effect of carbonated beverages??weightlessness??a hearty menu of classic pub grub will keep you tethered to earth. Pre-game for the Huskers with an avalanche of Foundation nachos ($7.95, or keep one hand open for celebrating touchdowns by munching on an Omaha Reuben ($7.59), served with a side of fresh-cut fries ($8.59 with fries). Gamblers who are short on cash after foolishly taking the long odds against the sun rising tomorrow can find solace in the Cheapskate (two sliders and fries, $3.99).
