Fans congregate at sports bars to drink to their team's successes and fashion voodoo dolls of rival quarterbacks from buffalo wings. Enjoy curse-free cuisine with today's Groupon: for $20, you get two burgers and two draft beers at Nova Lounge in Addison.
Nova Lounge's chefs load half-pound burger patties with six types of eclectic toppings while bartenders fill steins with eight bubbly draft beers. On the menu, the Inferno burger ($9) stokes oral furnaces with spicy chipotle and jalapeno peppers, pepper jack cheese, and pico de gallo chopped with a set of knives once owned by the Greek god Hephaestus. A breakfast club burger stuffed with bacon and eggs ($9) keeps morning meals up past their bedtime, while the jet-setting Geneva burger invites sautéed mushrooms and Swiss cheese ($9) to ride the rollercoasters of diners’ digestive systems. Draft beers such as Miller Light, Guinness, and Blue Moon balance the burgers’ zesty proclivities with cool temperatures and teams of tiny bubbles certified in tastebud massage.
The crisp fries that accompany each sandwich may be onion-ring- or sweet-potato-ized for an extra dollar; patrons can also pile on an extra patty for $3. Beneath plasma TVs blaring sports events, Nova's sleek black booths and gleaming bar tables host crowds of carousers during nightly concerts, parties, and black-tie hot-dog-eating contests.
