Before the advent of the television screen, remote sports games had to be enjoyed via in-person viewings, via radio, or via elaborate re-enactments by spry vaudevillians. Cast away your Charlie Chaplin moustache with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of upscale pub fare at Sporting News Grill sports bar in West Columbia.
Sporting News Grill offers nine 52-inch high-definition televisions and a zone sound system, offering a panoply of sporting events with coordinated aural stimuli. This upscale sports bar offers a menu that combines the best of pub fare with the greatest of gourmet.
Start with the Charleston crab dip, served steaming with homemade toast points ($7.95). The pan-Asian ahi tuna salad serves grilled ahi and crispy wonton strips on a bed of mixed greens and tangy oriental dressing ($9.95). Stomachs hosting the drum corps can bite into a juicy All-Star burger, an 8-ounce Angus patty grilled to order with three thick strips of bacon, blue cheese, and tangy barbecue sauce on the side ($9.95), accompanied by your choice of fries or onion rings. Sample a Sporting News specialty with the shrimp ’n’ grits—juicy garlic-sautéed shrimp over breaded, deep-fried, creamy grits, topped with a rich tasso gravy alongside down-home collard greens ($14.95), served with a small caesar or field greens salad. Breakfast is available every morning. Sports bloggers and fantasy-squirrel-racing players can also use the house WiFi to stay connected to their teams.
