An odd blast from the recent past, this spacious sports bar—which recently took over the former Players Bar and Grill space—transported us back to the mid-’90s with music videos from groups such as Rusted Root and Blind Melon flickering on a gigantic projection-screen TV. But wait a second: Weren’t the beefy, ball-capped boys nodding their heads the same dudes who beat us up in high school for whistling “No Rain” in the hallway?
