The popularity of sports bars implies that watching sports is enhanced by social interaction and that our jaws chew more efficiently while berating referees. Conclude your own hypothesis with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of bar fare and nonalcoholic beverages at Overtime Tap, located in the downtown business district.
Overtime Tap rejuvenates sports fans with a rich array of bar-fare noshes. Diners can customize carbohydrates with the build-your-own mac 'n' cheese ($6), swaddling penne, spiral, bowtie, or elbow pasta in a choice of aged irish cheddar, smoked gouda, port salut, swiss gruyere, or monterey jack. Fillings such as shitake mushrooms, grilled asparagus, or sliced jalapeños add texture and a pop of flavor to the cheesy concoction, jolting taste buds from their impossible day dreams of becoming professional athletes. The appetizer menu flaunts Atlantic zest with New England crab cakes, a pan-fried cluster of Lump Rhode Island blue crab, red bell peppers, celery, and scallions ($6). Sandwiches and burgers provide classic pub grub, and heartier fare sends diners on a delicious dash from hunger with the marinara-braised short rib of beef accompanied by cheddar mashed potatoes and fennel-spiced grilled asparagus ($19).
Overtime Tap unveils dance floors and music for tapping and snapping Thursday–Saturday. Tuesday trivia night challenges memories 6 p.m.–9 p.m. with topics such as world politics and famous silent-film quotes.
