When the legendary gay sports bar Fritz closed last year, there was brief panic among the flag football set. Thankfully, the nearby and more spacious Cathedral Station quickly took its place, absorbing a lot of the friendly Fritz staff in the process. The menu makeup is well-executed pub fare all the way, from the wings to the fish-and-chips; hearty brunch dishes are designed to absorb daytime beers. Cocktails are far more reasonably priced than at other places in the area (spring for the Irish coffee). When halftime comes, retreat to the enormous back patio for a hit of fresh air, or calm your nerves with a quick game of pool or darts.
