Eating is necessary for human survival, along with breathing, sleeping, and remaining still while a curious velociraptor rummages through your closet. Practice survival tactics with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of pub fare at Hot Ticket Pub & Venue in Clearwater.
Hot Ticket Pub & Venue's cadre of chefs conjures hearty plates of pub fare in a cozy sports-bar setting. Corral wayward appetites with starters such as smoked mullet dip ($7.49) sidled up next to club crackers and bucking taste buds with the heat from sliced jalapeños. The Black Jack burger fills a toasted bakery roll with a half-pound beef patty draped in pepper jack cheese and blackening seasoning ($8.99), and Casey's classic giant tenderloin sandwich ($9.99) piles a toasted roll high with buttermilk-marinated pork tenderloin, pounded thin for greater ease in jimmying car locks. For a bit of regional flair, the southern seafood basket ($12.99) sets a duo of catfish fillets and buttermilk battered shrimp afloat in a sea of crispy fries, hush puppies, southern-style coleslaw, and fried okra. While tongues are gift-wrapped in savory comestibles, Hot Ticket indulges the rest of the senses with TVs decked out with sports broadcasts such as NFL Sunday Ticket and hosts live music Tuesday–Saturday nights.
