Though the "noble experiment" of Prohibition failed, other noble experiments, such as teaching horses how to shoot guns and giving suffrage to any horse that can shoot a gun, were huge successes. Celebrate the failure of the 18th Amendment with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pub fare, drinks, and billiards at Skip & Jan’s Sports Bar located in Tempe.
Stocked with 24 pool tables and 40-plus flat-screen televisions, Skip & Jan’s satiates competitive and comestible hungers with a sandwich-heavy menu, which can be washed down with daily happy-hour drink specials. Prep starving stomachs for a game of billiards (starting at $0.75) with a Phoenix Son, a succulent 1/3-pound burger flame-broiled and decorated with grilled onions, american cheese, and avocado ($7.99). Or chomp into a pastrami melt cloaked in swiss cheese and grilled onions ($7.25) or a steak sandwich, where a sesame-seed bun encases enough tender muscle-building protein to fight off door-to-door medicine ball salespeople ($7.99). Skip & Jan’s also fetes gamers with weekly dart tournaments, off-track betting, and free WiFi ideal for betting on off-track darts.
- We've been here a hand full of times. Always nice people working the bar/register. Plenty of tables to get your game on. They've got a couple video games and a couple dart boards as well. In the bar, they've got karaoke, which is fun to watch. – Annalisa N., Yelp, 11/19/08
Skip & Jan's Sports Bar
The clatter of pool balls melds with the cheering from sports fans at Skip & Jan's Sports Bar, where 24 pool tables tempt those not busy watching the game on one of 20 flat-screen televisions. During time-outs, patrons nibble on tavern fare, such as potato skins, third-pound burgers, and tuna melts. The bar’s wings, which are served with nine different sauces, earned the eatery a feature in the Arizona Republic as one of the area’s 20 best places for wings not including a chicken farm.
