Before sports bars, the only place to view eight games simultaneously was inside the brain of a spider. Achieve octovision with today's Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of pub fare and pours at Pastimes Pub & Grill.
The Buckeye-backing proprietors of Pastimes Pub & Grill provide a sports-bar environment paired with bounteous bar fare. Their dishes are filtered through a colander of creativity, resulting in concoctions such as zesty greek nachos, crispy pita-chip swatches draped in gyro meat, crumbled feta, tomatoes, onions, and olives, ideal as a centerpiece for a philosophical conversation on the existence of nachos ($6.99). Standard fare like chicken caesar salad ($3.99–$5.99) and hand-battered walleye fish and chips ($8.99) also populate the menu, ready to sate straightforward appetites.
Pastimes' happy hour warps the space-time continuum by lasting for eight hours daily, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sip a cold brew while perusing the dozens of widescreen televisions that line the pub's scarlet walls, and are tuned to collegiate competitions, MLB games, and the occasional UFC grapple. Athletic endeavors continue outdoors with summertime cornhole contests and patio-based munching marathons.
