Hondo's, Indy readers' pick for Best New Bar last year, offers two huge projection screens and plenty more high-def monitors. You can sit at the bar and watch football, baseball, boxing and whatever, all at once. There's live music on the weekends, pool tables available all the time, free wireless Internet and very decent food that goes beyond just the usual bar grub for instance, breaded and fried jalapeo slices, clam chowder or chili every day, and steak specials.
