An old hole with a new name, this sports grill was part of a local chain called Jackson's Hole until 1999. New owners raised the bar, so to speak. Since then, it has earned a reputation as one of the city's top places to go for sports with its numerous televisions and its pool and dart spots. Happy Hour is Monday through Friday from 4 to 6:30pm, with a free buffet thrown in on Fridays. With relatively cheap drinks and no cover charge, that price can hardly be beat for a fun evening of slurping and sleeve-wiping. Charge! -Theresa Ludwick
