Now that food has been determined to have no hallucinogenic or addictive properties, the government has finally declared the Schedule I controlled substance safe for human consumption. Taste some not-so-forbidden fruit with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of BBQ, pub food, and drinks at All American Clubhouse on South Meridian Street.
All American Clubhouse gives its guests a family-friendly venue for enjoying great food, watching sports on flat-screen TVs, and imbibing the taste bud-nourishing potables that make eating and sports all the more rewarding. Flip a quarter to decide who gets to chomp on beer-battered mushrooms with horseradish dipping sauce ($4.95) and who gets dibs on a bowl of cheddar-cheesy, sour cream-summited beef chili ($5.95). For grippable edibles, procure some sandwiches, like the BBQ pulled pork (7.95), topped with pepper jack cheese, served on a soft brioche bun and escorted by your choice of fresh-cut french fries, potato chips, potato salad, coleslaw, or house salad. After an entree of battered wild fire shrimp ($13.95), tossed with garlic butter and blue-cheese sauce and heated up by grilled jalapenos and banana peppers, cool down the post-feast mouth inferno with a beverage from the bar’s extensive selection of beer and wine.
During childhood, clubhouses are ideal, gender-boundried spaces to commingle with fellow tweens, eat sweets, trade comics, and plot hostile corporate takeovers. The All American Clubhouse is a family-friendly alternative to the Machiavellian spaces of juvenility. Purple-hued fluorescent lights illuminate the interior, while burgundy-colored ceiling soil keeps fans from falling to the floor and dying. The restaurant, which opened in February, is a smoke-free environment, so puff through your daily box of Cubans before challenging a stranger to an arcade-game battle in exchange for his seat at the bar.
