There are plenty of sports bars in a town that bleeds orange and blue (and purple, black, blue, gold and/or burgundy when convenient). But alas, many of the options are milquetoast.

It’s like Cheers but smaller, and, as the flagship of the Little Pub Company’s lineup, has kept its status as a drinkers’ favorite for more than 25 years.
