The Founding Fathers held their initial meetings in a neighborhood tavern, which explains why the Declaration of Independence's first draft had a long, rambling subsection devoted to how powdered wigs are a natural icebreaker. Revolt against the tyranny of boredom with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pub fare at O'Malleys Bar and Grille.
O'Malleys Bar and Grille’s waitstaff delivers the menu’s hearty burgers and pastas to tables as bartenders sling bottled and draft beers from a 36-foot saloon-style oak bar. A duo of fried 4-ounce pork chops ($10.99) snoozes on fluffy pillows of veggies and garlic mashed potatoes, and Cajun linguine captures sautéed mushrooms, peppers, onions, and tomatoes in its zesty pasta snares ($11.99; add shrimp or chicken for $3.50). Alternatively, silence a date’s idle chatter about acid-base titration protocols with a sticky bite of the Cheesy BBQ burger slathered in melted american cheese, barbecue sauce, and hot sauce ($8.99).
O’Malleys patrons can head outdoors to imbibe beneath a plantation-inspired covered porch or stay inside to participate in weekly events, such as trivia and karaoke on Tuesday and frequent disc-spinning by live DJs. In addition, 27 flat-screen TVs flicker brightly on exposed-brick walls during nightly professional and collegiate face-offs, including Monday Night Football games and Olympic needle-pointing competitions.
