Visiting an Irish pub is like stepping into James Joyce's Ulysses without dealing with molemen, teenage detectives, and heavy-handed NASCAR references. Read the CliffsNotes with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of food and drinks at Shenanigans Pub at either of their two locations, on West 41st Street or in Tea on East 1st Street. This Groupon is for dine-in only.
Born into this world 24 years ago, Shenanigans was the brainchild of two guys who wanted to bring Sioux Falls the type of activity-loaded pub prophesied in the Book of Better Leisure. Their extensive menu features five pages of crowd-pleasing pub fare such as the half-pound Shenanigan burger with American cheese ($7.49) and the supreme nachos ($9.79). Make sure to order a stack of 50 hot wings ($29.99), so you're fully prepared for the dystopian future in which sauce-stained chicken bones are the chief form of currency. The Power Combo ($18.99) features 10 mini cheeseburgers and 10 wings with the sauce of your choosing. With a satellite location in Tea and the original location in Sioux Falls, Shenanigans wields the dual-bladed supremacy of being the local hot spot for both sports viewing and the sweet-and-sour tones of karaoke, which runs Wednesday through Saturday nights in Sioux Falls and every Saturday night in Tea.
With trivia, free WiFi, arcade games, pool, darts, foosball, and more than 20 TVs, Shenanigans provides the constant stimulation modern minds crave. Both locations hold free poker leagues, and the Tea location sports an outdoor beach-volleyball court. Keep your eyes firmly planted on the calendar so you don't miss any of the myriad of happenings at Shenanigans.
This Groupon is not valid for either locations' daily or weekly specials.

- Great food!! cold beer and fabulous drinks! The New Shennigans in TEA [sic] , S.Dak. is even better for the "business luncheon crowd" with a bit more privacy and room for the kids to entertain themselves... – Sioux Falls Beat reviewer, 4/26/2009
