THE LOCALE | Coliseum Family Sports Bar & Tavern
THE LOWDOWN | You'd be hard pressed to find another locale with more sports memorabilia per square-inch than Coliseum Family Sports Bar & Tavern. That's where we went for happy hour this week.
The Coliseum Family Sports Bar & Tavern has an insane amount of sports treasures hanging inside. From photos of athletes to baseball cards to team flags, each item is framed and displayed neatly on the hunter green walls for you to appreciate. You'll also spot a plethora of gnomes - 146 of them - representing sports teams and mascots. Even the bar stools and salt and pepper shakers have team logos on them.
The locally-owned joint is laid back and filled with neighborhood folks. It has a dozen TVs so patrons can watch teams play while they enjoy a meal or cold beverage. It's non-smoking and family-friendly, too. There is an outdoor patio available for smoking.
If you like to play darts then you'll love the Coliseum. There are five steel-tip dart boards and three electronic dart boards. And get this, the electronic dart boards are hooked up to the Internet and you can play darts with people from all over the world. There's even a video camera so you can see who you are playing against.
The owner claims to have catered and cooked for a number of celebrities, so be sure to try the food while you're there. The menu includes sandwiches, burgers, appetizers and dinners such as homemade lasagna, southwest chicken and fish and chips. Catering is also available.
Happy hour runs from 4 to 7 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. Drink deals include $2 house liquors, $2.25 domestic beers, $3.25 imports and $3 wines.
