Eating is necessary for human survival, along with breathing, sleeping, and remaining still while a velociraptor rummages through your closet. Practice survival tactics with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pub fare at Fanz Sports Grill.
Acclaimed by the Charlotte Observer, Fanz Sports Grill entertains cheering diners with more than 40 TVs, live music, and an expansive menu. Diners can ignite a social feast by devouring a warm and cheesy crab-and-spinach dip ($9.99), or dates can determine who is part dragon when selecting from more than 10 flavors of buffalo wings, including Cajun, garlic parmesan, and bourbon ($8.75 for 10). The Cuban sandwich ($8.99) blends roasted pork, ham, and swiss cheese on a soft hoagie roll, and the fish tacos ($8.99) envelop a galley fillet with cheddar-jack cheese and tomatoes diced with the precision of a robotic samurai. Fanz also boasts daily lunch specials that pair selections such as a BLT wrap, a salad-and-pasta combo, or a cheeseburger with a soft drink ($6.99).
Fanz Sports Grill's plethora of televisions display competitive acts of athleticism throughout the week, and the venue hosts acoustic performances on Wednesday evenings, dance music on Fridays, jazz on Saturdays, and pre-Monday groans on Sunday nights. Diners may also lounge and contemplate the merits of skorts out on the lushly covered outdoor patio.
Origin Story: Turns Out the Restaurateur Did It
Longing to leave his career in investment banking in the dust, Allen Smith bought Fanz Sports Grill in May 2011 to celebrate his love of sports and socializing, but he is most excited about booking live music every Friday and Saturday night. When not hitting the road on his motorcycle, Allen likes to pen novels and screenplays such as his crime caper Double Eagles, which was published last year.
