LeBeau's Tavern

Make no mistake about it, LeBeau's is a true sports bar. On the night of the Barflies' visit, one television screen played a football game, while another displayed a basketball game. At several tables, card games were being played. For those who cared to indulge, billiards, darts, bumper pool, pinball, and a lottery ticket vending machine were all available. As 75% percent of the Barflies are sports-averse (and that doesn't mean gay...not that there's anything wrong with that...), this not particularly a draw, but the Barflies appreciate that LeBeau's knows its' primary clientèle and caters to them. Mr. Draft, however, was disappointed by the draft options as there were but four choices: Budweiser, Bud Lite, Bud Select and a fourth forgotten offering of equal prestige. Mr. Draft, Mr. Merlot. and Mr. Cork ordered all the Bud varieties and, having sipped from all three mugs (also not gay!), Mr. Draft is of the opinion that the lines from all three tap handles all run directly into the same keg. Mr. Merlot bought several small bags of potato chips (at fifty cents per) and despite the different packaging, the Barflies concluded that the chips all came from the same original source. The barmaid was pretty and safely flirtatious, the bar was packed, the crowd was friendly...a great neighborhood bar in a good location. It's only significant drawback (for Mr. Draft, anyway) was the lackluster beer selection. And don't even get Mr. Merlot talking about the wine list... LeBeau's rates a solid 7.5.

It would be great if you could remember to include the addresses or locations of these places. I'm on a hunt for new places so thanks for creating this blog-- much obliged.
