Though the “noble experiment” of Prohibition failed, other noble experiments, such as teaching horses how to shoot guns and giving suffrage to any horse that could shoot a gun, were huge successes.

28 HDTVs festoon the walls of 97 Lake Sports Café and Restaurant, where 10 varieties of draft beer and 50 species of bottled beer wash down wings, burgers and pub fare as well as a robust gluten-free menu. An abundance of buffalo wings slide into mouths on a wave of spicy sauces ($13 for 16), warming up stomachs before an order of slow-cooked baby-back ribs ($16–$24) or a jaw-exhausting round of juicy half-pound burgers ($11–$16), each named after a famous athlete or a famously athletic piece of ground beef. A Philly cheesesteak ($12–$14) barely contains its cargo of thinly sliced new york strip beef, caramelized onions, and homemade cheese sauce within a hoagie bun (gluten-free buns available). Wash down bites with hoppy beverages such as Hoegaarden Biere Blanche ($7), one of the ten beers available on tap, or sips from a glass of St. Francis Old Vine Zinfandel ($10), one of the restaurant’s 45 wines.
97 Lake Sports Cafe and Restaurant
Like any good sports bar, 97 Lake Sports Cafe and Restaurant glows with the light of major events on high-definition TVs—28, to be exact—and a 108-inch big screen while serving ample pub-style food and beer. But 97 Lake stands out from the pack in a key way: it couples the regular menu, which is chock-full of half-pound burgers and sauce-slathered wings, with a gluten-free version for both kids and adults. The owner has celiac disease and so does his daughter, so he knows how eating out can be a frustrating experience for those with gluten sensitivity. To make his eatery a welcoming and tasty outing for everyone, the kitchen staff is trained to prepare a wide variety of gluten-free food, including pizza, pulled-pork sandwiches and onion rings, pretzel bites, fried pickles, and mac-and-cheese. All this combined has helped 97 Lake earn a win from Westchester Magazine for 2013's Best Sports Bar.
