Everything old is new again. Today it's the dawn of a brotherhood: the saloon.
Tip your hat and say hello to Outpost restaurant.
This Western-themed watering hole encourages you and your buddies to throw peanut shells on the floor, gnaw on cowboy corncob, and drink brown liquor out of a barrel.
There's no piano player, only 24 TVs and a TouchTunes jukebox. The world’s largest digital pay-per-play network, this bad boy lets you choose the soundtrack without leaving your table after a quick app download to your smartphone.
As if that wasn’t enough of a draw, Outpost's daily specials are the clincher:
Monday: $1 draft beers
Tuesday: 2-for-1 drinks
Wednesday: $5 whiskey
Thursday: 25-cent wings
Your wallet doesn't benefit from the Friday and Saturday specials, but your eyes will, as Outpost pulls in the lasses with calorie-conscious $5 skinny margaritas.
As for Sunday, we're talking an all-day cookout and all-you-can-eat buffet.
See you there on any day that ends with a y.
