Eating at home is so relaxing that your body may fall asleep mid-digestion—ergo, it's best to eat as close to a game of darts as possible. Worry your way into a well-digested meal with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of casual bar fare at Bar 101 in Johnston.
Bar 101's amiable atmosphere plays host to an expansive menu of burgers, pizzas, and bar delicacies that set the stage for weekly events. Rich layers of crumbled bleu cheese, bacon, and ranch dressing smother the pepper-encrusted black and bleu burger ($8), while the thai crunch salad chauffeurs bites of grilled chicken, mixed greens, chow mein, wasabi peas, and rice wine peanut vinaigrette ($8) safely to hungering mouths. As the night stretches on toward a 1 a.m. closing time, grilled pizzas ($7–$8) such as the loaded potato, topped with bacon, potatoes, monterey jack, and garlic oil, accompany a hearty list of martinis and wines set to grease tall tales of champion fish and game-show-winning sharks.
Events at Bar 101, such as trivia nights on Mondays, challenge noggins with cultural facts and incoming radio frequencies. Thursday's live acoustic rock nights delight ears with ample auditory narratives, as guitars provoke toe-tapping shoes to check for level floors.
