The modern-day tavern custom of eating hot wings while watching sporting events far outfuns the antiquated pub tradition of chewing on radishes while watching the bartender install radon detectors. Enjoy the benefits of modernity with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $25 worth of jumbo hot wings, frosty beers, and more at Woody's @ City Market, located on Wolfe Street in Raleigh. This Groupon is valid only at the City Market location.
Woody's @ City Market prides itself on presenting scrumptious bar food and a throng of cold brews in a sometimes rowdy, often easy-going pub. Regulars have found sweet and savory solace in Woody's signature jumbo hot wings ($8.50 for single order), blasted with your choice of sauce, from sweet to spicy barbecue to "insane" sauce, concocted by spicy scientist Victor VonSalsa. Or line your belly with eight favorably sized mini tacos topped with the usual suspects of cheese, tomato, and sour cream. Delve into Woody's Southern fried pork chop ($8.50), a juicy, 8-ounce cut that's marinated, seasoned, and triumphantly presented with sides such as tater tots or cheese fries (each $1.50 extra). Grown-ups can give hot taste buds a cold shower with one of Woody's 22 draft beers and 50 bottled brewskies, including several local brews such as the citrusy Foothills Hoppyum IPA or the Big Boss Bad Penny brown ale.
With a raucous but friendly bar area and a more subdued dining area, burger-lovers can tailor the ambience to their temperament. Ogle RBIs on one of 30 flat-screen hi-def TVs, or set a musical mood with live bands on the weekend. Woody's quirky, carefree attitude oozes from its décor of bizarre knick-knacks, such as sports jerseys, fishes with painted flames, and a wall-mounted moose draped with brassieres.
