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 beers, wraps, and more at Blinco's Sports Restaurant and Bar, located on Glenwood Avenue. A food item must be purchased with this Groupon.

Those who claim allegiance to a sports team and a cheesesteak will approve of Blinco's neighborhood hangout atmosphere and pan-regional American cuisine. Prep anxious tummies with a cold brewsky from the rotating tap list, which currently spouts Yuengling and Two Hearted Ale. For a communal or selfishly hoarded appetizer, nibblers can try a little of everything with the Brickyard Sampler ($10.49), which includes a choice of three starters (jalapeno halves, fried ravioli, onion rings, wings, and chicken fingers). Many entrees on Blinco's pub-friendly menu are associated with a specific region: the sautéed pepper-topped cheesesteak ($8.49) from Philadelphia, the jalapeno-cheddar brats from Wisconsin ($6.99), and the hot-sauce-drenched NY Dog (one dog for $5.99, two for $7.99) from the New York oblast of Ukraine.

Blinco's opened its initial location in 1996, and became a beacon of beer-glowing light in the neighborhood by staying open after Hurricane Fran descended upon the Triangle. Having since moved and bolstered its flat-screen arsenal to more than 40 TVs, Blinco's remains the neighborhood joint to mellow with a cold brew and watch playoff baseball, Golden Girls reruns, or a NASCAR race. Check the game calendar for a TV Guide-esque listing of what sports the bar will be showing.

This Groupon is valid for dine-in only, and may not be used for daily specials or drink specials.


Citysearchers give Blinco's an average of 4.5 stars. Five Yelpers give it a four-star average, and four Insider Pagers give it an average of five stars.
