Early sports enthusiasts combined food and athletics by slam-dunking watermelons and using treadmills as pasta rollers. See how far sports bars have come with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of pub fare at Legends On Pearl.
Diners at Legends on Pearl dig into a menu of juicy burgers and fried appetizers as sports coverage buzzes on several large flat-screen TVs. After patrons go to bat with the golden spears of fried pickle ($6), oven-baked bread slices and fearless foam fingers can take a swan dive into the gooey salsa queso of a fondue bowl ($8). The ranch-seasoned cowboy burger ($10) stacks a juicy, half-pound patty with bubbling pepper jack and crispy onion rings, and the Draft Pick cheese panini ($7) gives grilled cheese a facelift with a choice of fillings such as mozzarella and crumbled blue.
Highlighter-yellow light panels and purple fluorescent lights radiate from Legends’ fully stocked bar (alcohol not included with this Groupon), casting a window-full of 2-D athletes in heroic silhouette—a constant reminder to diners and paper-doll football players that good things do come to those who dream.
