The Olympics are coming! The Olympics are coming! So grab a seat at a local bar and an Olympic TV listings guide, and raise a glass to the world's superhuman athletes.
In honor of the the Olympics' UK home, Northside Bar (in the back righthand corner of Whole Foods' Scottsdale store) features a "London's Calling Beer Special." Get twenty percent off all English beers during opening ceremonies on Friday, July 27 including Boddington's and Tetley's on nitro, or grab any English beer off the shelf to pop open at the bar.
Northside Bar regularly offers more than 30 taps and plenty of wine offerings, gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches, tapas and charcuterie plates. Happy hour lasts from 4 to 8 p.m., featuring a dollar off anything on tap. If none of that sounds enticing, venture into the marketplace to pick up drinks, snacks or prepared food to enjoy by the bar's two 60-inch TVs. If the excitement of all the sporting events has you feeling extra competitive, consider going all out Supermarket Sweep style.
