The most common way to experience the Deep South is to find a street magician and hope he pulls a shiny Louisiana state quarter from your ear. Today's Groupon to Time Out Sports Cafe presents another option when there are no illusionists handy. Choose between the following options:
• For $7, you get $14 worth of pub fare for lunch.
• For $15, you get $30 worth of pub fare for dinner.
The culinary sorcerers at Time Out Sports Cafe conjure up sumptuous helpings of Southern-inspired pub grub to anoint bare plates and occupy vacant stomachs. Loosen tense jaw muscles on appetizers such as fried pickle spears ($5.75) or the T.K.O. jalapeños ($10.50), which swaddle crabmeat in fresh jalapeño swimsuits and offer a pool of rémoulade for wild splash fights. The Touchdown red beans and rice ($9) invite taste buds to explore the south with a spicy and savory mélange of robust red beans and real smoked sausage, while the oyster po boy's ($11.75) fresh and fried Gulf oysters let landlocked diners taste the flavors of the Gulf coast without the hassle of stealing Louis Armstrong's lunchbox. Midday munching begins with daily lunch specials ($9), featuring a constantly evolving selection of dishes from jambalaya to corned beef and cabbage.
Time Out Sports Cafe keeps a full bar of drinks on hand to extinguish incendiary thirsts and spontaneously combusting patrons. While filling stomachs or offering throats liquid refreshment, diners can catch a favorite sporting event on a cadre of televisions or engage in the amusement of physics and geometry with pool and dartboards.
