Best Of 2013: Neighborhood Bar: East
Holy Cow literally has action every night of the week, with beer pong, karaoke, a running club, cornhole tournaments and a variety of free, live sports viewings that keep its east-side regulars ever busy. "We have a great group of people in this area who support us," says co-owner Chuck Schafer. Giveaways and drawings during each game also bring in a lot of customers. "We're a neighborhood bar with a little extra, a little more than normal," says Schafer. Drop by during an upcoming game to grab 50 wings and a tower of beer for $49, and while you're there, chat with the melting pot of loyal patrons enjoying the rooftop bar.— Nathaniel Kelley
Your pick for Best Neighborhood Bar on the east side, Holy Cow offers generous happy hours, plus poker, karaoke and live country and rock music nights past regular lunch and dinner service. The three-patty bacon and cheese Holy Cow burger ($15) almost says it all.
