Before sports bars, man huddled in tree houses to watch chipmunk football and to banter about next season's tulip draft. Upgrade to the finery of a modern sports bar with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of food and drinks at Traditions Food, Sports, and Spirits, located just south of Crossroads Mall.
Traditions, formerly known as Indigo Joe's, maintains a devotion to large frosty brews, colossal dishes, and the art of displaying gentlemanly brutes on multiple screens. Their 49 high-definition TVs show all the popular sports, and Traditions provides a radio at every table in case you need to hear your event's play-by-play or Coach Roosevelt's halftime fireside chats. The comfortable cushioned chairs pamper posteriors during marathon clashes, and there’s a bulked-up bar-food menu. Hulking specimens may wish to try the onion rings with barbecue sauce ($7) or the juicy bacon cheeseburger ($9), which comes in a half-pound slab of certified Angus beef. Wash it down with the monolithic 34-ounce beer, served from an extensive bar that features 20 beers to wet all frequencies of whistle.
Traditions' dining-room walls boast pennants and autographed photos celebrating the triumph of past dynasties and the elegance of Sharpie cursive. The patrons at Traditions take the games seriously, but everyone still knows how to have fun in the event of a win, loss, or a Hutton's paradox. You can use your Groupon for happy-hour pricing on drinks and appetizers Monday through Saturday, including on Italian Thursdays, when you can sip half-price wine and munch flatbread pizza. A central downtown location makes this friendly watering hole a fine stop before a night out or after a day fishing for water nymphs.
Today’s Groupon is not valid on Nebraska Cornhusker football game days or UFC Fight Nights.
- Giant beers - Many bars do not understand the appeal of the giant beer or only have it as a special. IG's understands my need for 34 ounce servings of beer. Plus, their on tap selection is impressive. – ryan t., Yelp
- It's great for sports viewing. You can get a TV speaker for your table to listen to the one TV you want out of the many in view. The food is good and the wait staff friendly and helpful. – herniaowner, TripAdvisor
