Cheering a sports team, like starting the wave or establishing a sovereign nation based on salad-dressing preference, is most effective when surrounded by a group of like-minded peers. Congregate around the feats of athletes with today’s Groupon: for $10 you get $20 worth of American fare and drinks at Sidelines Sports Pub in Avon.
Sidelines Sports Pub serves as a haven during game time with 25 TVs airing sports and a full roster of hand-grilled grub and liquid pick-me-ups. An expansive lunch and dinner menu includes pregame warm-ups such as hand-battered onion rings ($3.95), baja chicken-enchilada soup ($4.95), and subliminal encouragement to stretch.

Weekly events include Cornhole and Texas Hold ‘Em tournaments, as well as live music on Saturday nights from bands comprised entirely of retired ball boys.
