Televised sports are best enjoyed with a belly full of meat, alcohol and large portions of things fried in grease. If the sporting action is on numerous giant screens and there are cheap hot wings to be had, all the better.
This seems to be what's going on in the new Station Pub and Grill, which opened recently in the spot at 8235 N. Silverbell Road, which was formerly home to the short-lived Jackson's Grille and Gastropub.
Co-owner Clint Bolin says the interior has been repainted, redesigned and redecorated to give it a more spacious feel, and that there are now 10 large televisions scattered throughout. He and his partner in the business, Amy Pappas, are shooting for a casual restaurant feel by day and a neighborhood pub at night.
The Station is kicking things off right, with .35 cent wings on Wednesdays, $5.99 burger specials on Mondays (you can add a domestic draft for a dollar more) and both happy hour and reverse happy hours on most weekdays. There are also daily specials and live music and other things that go well with drinking, eating and the like.
Bolin says the response from the neighborhood has been great so far, especially regarding the large portions the place dishes out. Call 789-7040, or visit the place on Facebook for more information.
