Rhein Haus is a biergarten-style sports bar that also serves up good German fare, 24 beers on tap, and enough TVs for fans keeping an eye on the score. We come for the bocce, though, which is played on four beautifully maintained courts. From Sunday to Thursday, the bocce courts can be reserved ahead, but they're first come, first served on Friday and Saturday and cost between $5 and $7 an hour per person. When you've worked up an appetite, go for the giant pretzel with four sauces to share and the currywurst with a wendel (a fried, salted, spiral-cut potato on a stick). If bocce is your game, consider joining Rhein Haus's Sunday winter league.
