Neighborhoods value their bars as a place to socialize, just as they value the ends of their rainbows as a place to find extra parking-meter change. Enjoy camaraderie at close proximity with today's Groupon to Stadium Sports Bar & Restaurant in Encinitas. Choose between two options:
* For $10, you get $20 worth of pub fare.
* For $18, you get burgers and beers for two (up to a $36.98 value).
Stadium Sports Bar & Restaurant inspires toasts with its 60 HDTVs, 31 draft beers, and a savory menu of classic, American pub fare. Those choosing the first option can rev tongue engines with an appetizer of succulently sauced chicken wings ($8.99) or skip straight to an entree such as the classic new york strip steak ($16.99). Select the second option, and grab a friend, girlfriend, or imaginary friend of a girlfriend's friend and share two frothy pints of Ballast Point Brewing's Sculpin (an $8.50 value for a 23 oz.) or any other 16- or 23-ounce brew. Duos of diners may adopt eats from an eclectic burger menu sporting selections such as the juicy turkey, avocado, and bacon burger (a $9.99 value) and the popular Jack Murphy crowned with onion rings, bacon slices, and a victor's sash of cheese (a $9.99 value).
Digesting guests can stroll onto the bar's outdoor patio, where nine HDTVs and a 28-foot-long fire canal cast an alluring glow. Kids can bounce between walls of the movie and game room while parents watch from a personal, in-booth television screen to ensure they play safely and refrain from metamorphosing into rubber balls.
