Sports bars bring food, drink, and athletics together in a way that hasn't been seen since vending machines were banned from competing in the Olympic games in 1964. Capture the spirit of celebration and chew on it with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of upscale sports-bar fare at Mugs Bar & Grill.
While Mugs' main room welcomes spirited sports lovers with 14 plasma TVs and a 102" projection screen, its fiery flavorsmiths busily intensify the menu with fine cookery to save fans from mid-game famine. Prepare palates for kick off with Mugs' spicy tuna tataki, pan-seared sushi-grade tuna ensconced in cajun spices ($12). Spinach-stuffed ravioli ($11) appeases mouth mafias with payments of mozzarella, roasted garlic, and a choice of vodka, marinara, alfredo, or pesto sauce, and chicken marsala ($12) paints brilliant, wine-infused portraits of sautéed mushrooms onto waiting tongues. A lineup of 12 draft beers, including Newcastle, Stella Artois, Guinness, Blue Moon, and Coors Light ($3), ensure a mug-filled match to fit every ale-appetite, and frosty bottles of Heineken, Red Stripe, Coors, and Dos Equis wait to be emptied and re-purposed as purely decorative kazoos.
Mugs' true-to-its-roots setting features dark tabletops slung across long, hardwood floors, with televisions engaging in non-stop competitions to display the most extreme action in sports and high-stakes antiquing. Foosball and pool tables fight head-to-head to settle the age-old debate between men with sticks and men on sticks, and dartboards help weeknight warriors prepare for summertime battle against armies of carnival balloons.
