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 could shoot a gun, were huge successes. Celebrate the failure of the 18th Amendment with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of pub fare and drinks at The Tailgater.
Located across from the Spokane Arena, The Tailgater equips game-time diners with a savory pub menu and foaming brews. Field Goal fries pile up in regular ($3.99), garlic ($4.99), or cheese ($5.99) varieties like a rough-and-tumble rugby league of Mr. Potato Heads. Nacho cheese smothers Home Run nachos covered in seasoned beef, black beans, veggies, and sour cream ($11.99 large; $8.99 small), and spicy kettle chips ($4.99) or bottomless homemade chips and salsa ($5.99) take a more minimalist approach. Slap-Shot wings ($8.99) slather 10 of the wings that pro sports dreams use to fly in a choice of mild, medium, hot, or spicy barbecue sauces.
Patrons can sip a pitcher of domestic suds as they root for their team on wall-to-wall flat-screen TVs or poach for the eight ball on a billiards table. The Tailgater will also be home to the Spokane Comedy Club, which will feature acts such as Bob & Tom Comics.
