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 to Sand Bar in Marco Island. Choose between the following options:
- For $10, you get $20 worth of sports bar fare and drinks.
- For $18, you get $40 worth of sports bar fare and drinks, valid for a party of four or more people.
Outfitted with wireless speakers, the tables at Sand Bar prop up plates from the lunch and dinner menu, illuminated by the flickering glow of 40 TVs. Platefuls of fish and chips emerge from the kitchen either beer-battered or crunchy, with shallow depths of signature tartar sauce for dipping or rock skipping ($9.99). Additional seafood options include hand-breaded oysters ($9.99) or coconut shrimp served with house-made orange-honey sauce ($13.99), residing alongside a culinary crew of thin-crust pizzas, grilled burgers, and sandwiches. Diners can also haul in fresh fish that they have caught or lured out of the sea with trails of mini marshmallows for Sand Bar cooks to prepare with professional bravado ($7.99). Parched throats can sip the sauces off wings that come in increments of 10, 20, or 30 ($6.99–$19.99) or gurgle bottled or draft selections from the beer list. In addition to after-dark fare available until 2 a.m., Sand Bar keeps antemeridian hours, filled with the sounds of eggshells cracking open to help concoct selections from the breakfast menu, including omelets, egg sandwiches, and pancakes.
