Bars have become the meeting places of choice now that libraries, public parks, and desolate midnight crossroads are all under Prohibition. Enjoy a legal and delicious dalliance with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $45 worth of drinks and Mexican fare at Money Plays.
Money Plays' friendly bartenders pour an ever-changing roster of 17 beers on tap and 50 bottled brews as well as wine, sake, and cocktails in a low-key tavern outfitted with shuffleboard, foosball, and 15 video-poker machines. Draft beers include sudsy craft offerings such as Indian Wells Mojave Red ($4–$6.50/pint), Lobotomy Bock ($4–$6.50/pint), and Lost Coast Tangerine Wheat ($3–$4.75/pint). A multitude of bottled beers, ranging from American lagers to Imperial IPAs and Belgian ales, also line up to woo patrons by composing Petrarchan sonnets in their honor. Sippers can send taste buds on treasure hunts for fruity flavors with the bar's assortment of Takara Hana sake shots ($2). Fortify stomachs or edible sculptures of Chichen Itza with a pair of enchiladas accompanied by beans and rice ($4.99) or a heaping beef or chicken burrito ($4.99) from Money Plays' next-door neighbor, El Taco Feliz.
With a brew in tow, patrons can totter over to the shuffleboard table or challenge cohorts to a match of darts or foosball. An array of 15 video-poker machines pit patrons against digital opponents who remain unfazed by grimacing game faces or seductive veil dances. Clients can share the details of their day with a room of strangers during open-mic night, held every Thursday at 9 p.m., or enjoy live music from local and touring bands on Saturday nights free of cover charge.
