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 drinks and bar fare at Whiskey River Saloon.
Each of Whiskey River Saloon's three country-themed levels teems with drink-slinging action at its own full-service bar, while a multitude of plasma TVs compete for sports lovers' attention. Dartboards and pool tables bedeck the first and second floors, encouraging diners to see who can rack the fastest, and the third floor boasts a rooftop patio overlooking the river. Waitresses whisk out appetizers such as the dry-rubbed wings, which are crispy fried, coated with secret seasoning, and served with buffalo-ranch dressing ($7). Cowpokes can glaze their gullets with daily drink specials, or bite into a handheld craw comforter such as the caprese burger, topped with mozzarella cheese, a tomato slice, balsamic vinegar, and basil ($8). Entrees such as the Whiskey River chicken, served with salsa cruda and garlic mashed potatoes ($10), gallop into a sunset of gastrointestinal glory.
Whiskey River Saloon is adorned with exposed brick and natural barn wood that make even the toughest cowboy homesick for the O.K. Corral or the Mediocre Mountains. Live DJs, local bands, and karaoke nights keep the first level's stage and dance floor clear of tumbleweeds and the somber sound of canned wind.
