Bars have become the meeting places of choice now that libraries, public parks, and desolate midnight crossroads are all under Prohibition. Enjoy a legal and delicious dalliance with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $14 worth of seafood and American fare at Poncabird Pub.
Poncabird Pub's oversized burgers and seatreats dazzle onlookers by nimbly leaping through grill flames and onto awaiting plates. A Poncabird signature menu item, the humbly named hamburger sears its 10-ounce Angus beef patty to patrons' exact instructions ($7.49), which are relayed to cooks through encrypted stomach growls and ketchup-splattered dossiers. Seafood options include the albacore tuna salad ($6.49), a combo sampler that unites shrimp, mussels, and clams ($12.99), and the house-specialty Maryland crab soup, ladled into a cup ($4.49) or bowl ($5.99). Fire-licked and smooched by barbecue sauce, the 8-ounce boneless chicken breast nestles into a basket with chips, a pickle, and the diner's choice of roll ($7.49). A selection of domestic and imported beer and liquor smiles behind the bar, ready to make small talk or inspire big arias among approaching pub-goers.
Eyes venturing from the open grill discover eight mounted plasma-screen televisions, floor-to-ceiling windows, and a long-lost imaginary coworker waving the long-lost tape dispenser from across the pub. Enticing wafts of Poncabird's aromatic fare launch skyward from the pub's outdoor deck, where a tiki bar stands among ample seating. Both scheduled musicians and Friday-night karaoke enthusiasts frequent the bar's dedicated performance space.
For over 30 years, patrons hungry for fresh, local seafood and juicy burgers have made the pilgrimage up to the Poncabird Pub's second floor, clinking frosty beers and cocktails amid a welcoming sports-bar ambience. Underneath the rustic, knotty wooden rafters, 12 TVs broadcast baseball and football games, while sizzling grills broil 10-ounce patties of beef to mouthwatering perfection by helping them get over their fear of open flames. A spacious open-air deck frames revelers underneath fluffy summer clouds or twinkling night skies, and regular DJs infuse nights out with a pounding soundtrack.
