Beer, like soap, comes in a bar and livens up any shower. Wash your mouth out with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of drinks at Midtown Sundries in St. Petersburg.
Midtown Sundries' stable of affable barkeeps pours beer, wine, and cocktails within the lively confines of the spacious sports bar. Behind an airy bar in the round, cocktail shakers thrum with more than 40 martinis and specialty drinks in flavors such as Mango-licious and triple chocolate ($3.95–$9), which combine top-shelf liquors with fruit purées and other elixirs. Drafts and bottles of domestic, craft, and imported beers such as Guinness, Icehouse, and Delirium Tremens ($3.50–$8) effervesce in foam-topped glasses, and wines ($5.25–$8.50) and well cocktails ($4.75) preen atop cocktail-napkin perches. Colorful pennants flap above the slick wooden bar, where stools proffer views of more than 35 televisions flickering with highlight reels, season-altering matchups, and interviews with football’s most famous goal posts.
