Talking about sports, like winning the lotto and undergoing surgery, goes better with a cold beer. Make every hour happy hour with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pubnacious grub and subsequent chugs at The Barley Room.
Start your gustatorial voyage by sinking enamel into a double green-chile cheeseburger ($9.25), a half pound of meat heaped with more chile and cheese than a chili-cookoff runoff pond. The menu is stocked with classic bar bites such as mountainous nachos ($6.50), hand-cut New York strip steaks ($17), and flocks of buffalo-chicken sandwiches ($9). There are creative dishes too; try carne adovada egg rolls ($7.50) or a warm garlic-herb tortilla wrap with avocado, onions, cucumbers, and mozzarella cheese ($7.50). Cleanse your esophagus with an Arrogant Bastard ($6.75) or Rogue Dead Guy Ale ($3.75) frothy brew from the beer menu, which has 20 beers on tap and many more in bottles.
A sports-minded joint, The Barley Room features a 106" high-definition projection TV tuned to the latest, greatest match and attuned to the feelings and whims of the players therein. There's live music every Friday and Saturday night; band auditions take place on Thursday evenings, so get Blood Boat back together and embrace your metal destiny. There's an outdoor patio and free wireless Internet, too.
You must be 21 to enter.
