Pubs bring communities together without using novelty-size lassos or requiring citizens to wear magnetic ascots. Keep the binding glue flowing with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pub fare and drinks at Johnny J's Pub & Grille, valid for both Akron locations.
Bartenders at Johnny J's Pub & Grille pour a vast selection of draft and bottled beers to complement multifaceted sports coverage and hearty, carnivorous fare from the menu. The Valley location juggles 28 foaming draft beers from breweries including Dogfish Head, Bell's, and Magic Hat, and both locations pop bottles from Thirsty Dog and Goose Island. Hitch your brew to an 8-ounce sirloin-steak dinner ($10.99) to blaze a trail down the 60-seat bar. Bread-bookended bites include the Ritchey, featuring grilled chicken smothered in house-made sweet-and-spicy sauce ($7.99), or the Slow Mo pulled pork ($7.99), a slow-cooked pork sandwich famous for its dramatic reenactments of bullet-dodging sequences.
More than 30 high-definition TVs cover specialty sports channels including NBA League Pass and NFL Sunday Ticket, allowing darting eyes to keep pace with noshing mouths. Or act out drinking-buddy rivalries with pool, golf, darts, and bowling games, with losers having to down all future brews from sippy cups
