Astronaut cooks have made numerous attempts to wrangle hamburgers into space-ready meals, from dehydrated-pickle disks to vacuum-sealed burger bottles. Enjoy what our starry-eyed brethren never can with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of American fare and drinks at Wooden Nickel Sports Bar & Grill.
Wooden Nickel Sports Bar & Grill's all-American menu satisfies patrons' appetites and curiosities every day of the week from morning to midnight. Buttered and toasted semmel buns cuddle with beef patties to form combinations such as the third-pound Touchdown burger ($4.74) and the half-pound Homerun hamburger ($5.74). Crunch into cheese curds, breaded cheddar nuggets served with a pool of marinara sauce ($6.95), or feast on the Vikings Vegetarian burger, which showcases a black-bean or meatless Boca patty ($5.74), to please vegetarians and flummox anthropomorphic carrots alike. Ears and eyes can entertain themselves with one of Wooden Nickel's 10 TVs airing sports-centric programming from NFL Sunday Ticket, ESPN, and the Big Ten Network.
Wooden Nickel Sports Bar & Grill
The Wooden Nickel Sports Bar & Grill could easily throw out the tables and chairs, burn the menus, and close down the bar—even then, people would have plenty to do and see. While diners feast on burgers, they bask in the glow of televisions broadcasting sports from ESPN GamePlan, NFL Sunday Ticket, and Fox Sports Network. Trivia competitions bring friendly rivalries into the eatery on weeknights, where players can match minds to win free drinks and bragging rights at the next Mensa track meet. The kitchen's pub grub mixes well with draft and bottled beers, which wait in the wings to swoop in and extinguish thirst pangs or rinse burger residue from hands.
