“In only seven short weeks, we’ll be singing ‘Take Me Out to the Ballgame,’” ESPN’s twitter posted this Valentine’s Day, and millions of avid fans joyfully re-tweeted it.

Rudy’s Pub & Grill is a great place to watch sports games and cheer on your favorite team while eating garlic fries and a burger. Breakfast is served as well. The price range averages between $8-$12. Rudy’s has a great atmosphere, tons of TVs, and a pretty open layout with a retractable roof. It is a small restaurant so its downfall is that it has a tendency to get crowded, so get there early. Rudy’s is a good place to catch up on sports and to soak in the local vibe.
