The actual best thing since sliced bread is sliced meat placed between sliced bread and then sliced in triangles and stuffed into a donut. Fill the meatless void in your life with today's Groupon: for $12, you get dinner for two at Sweeney's Saloon (up to a $26.85 total value). The meal consists of:
- One appetizer (up to a $6.95 value)
- Two entrees (up to a $9.95 value each)
Father-and-son team Ken and Terry Sweeney founded Sweeney's in 1985 to fortify sports fans and unaffiliated revelers with family hospitality and hearty pub eats. Like visiting foreign dignitaries, wings arrive smothered in one of eight zesty sauces and sampler platters designed for digital delectation bear chicken fingers, mozzarella sticks, jalapeño poppers, pizza fingers, and onion rings. Eight Philly-steak sandwiches sport tender slices of beef and chicken alongside oven-warmed jewels such as a roast-chicken grinder stacked with bacon and swiss cheese on crisp garlic toast. A pair of house-made broiled crab cakes steps out on dinner platters with potatoes draped in parsley and the vegetable of the day carved to comment on that day's newspaper headlines.
Sports action broadcast on high-definition TVs solicits roars from pub-goers and tiger-eyed competitors squint at two pool tables and three dart boards. On Thursdays–Sundays, live music soundtracks the polite revelry, and weekly quiz nights grant visitors a chance to flaunt their working knowledge of David Alan Grier's early work.
