The cool, hobbit's shire feel of the library is often negated by strict regulations on food consumption and vocal decibel level. Have your secluded nook and eat in it too with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $25 worth of pub grub, beverages, and sports at Library Sports Pub and Grill, an athletic-themed watering hole in Novi.
A deep, wooden cove of stained-glass lamps, stacked books, and flat-screen TVs, Library Sports Pub and Grill gives nerds and jocks a place to co-exist over pints and pizza math. Start with an order of pub stuffed mushroom caps ($6.95), a compact cup of herbs and garlic cheeses, hand-battered and fried. Other pubby appetizers include bacon skins ($7.95), nachos ($7.95), and garlic-and-onion bread twists ($4.25). The pizza menu accommodates requests for pies both round and square, with tons of veggie, meat, and make-your-own options (small make-your-own pizzas start at $7.25, with extra items $1.45 each). Flatten out a favorite sandwich with the BLT pizza ($10.25 for a small), or study for the bio quiz over Library's award-winning wings ($6.75 for 10) in such flavors as hot, blazin', teriyaki, garlic, barbecue, and more.
Wash down selections with one of Library's global beers. From bottled to draught, the watering hole boasts an impressive catalog of suds to suck down. Local games grace Library's flat screens, and an outdoor patio offers opportunities to work on your tan over drinks and grub with fellow shelter-phobes.
This Groupon is valid at the Novi location only.

Library Sports Pub and Grill
Bottle caps and taps unfurl pints of domestic and imported beers alongside hearty burgers and nachos at Library Sports Pub and Grill's locations in Novi and West Bloomfield. Pizzas baked in circles or squares embrace medleys of meats and vegetables, and Saint Louis–style ribs in full and half slabs revel beneath piquant sauces or dry rubs. Southwestern fajitas sizzle beside cool glasses from an extensive draft selection that includes Stella Artois and Guinness, as well as martinis from a seasonal menu and a signature frozen drink of the month. After game clocks run out on the bar's big-screen televisions, diners test their might at live trivia. The pub takes a tongue-in-cheek approach to its namesake with frequent-diner "library cards" and complimentary due-date face stamps.
