Too often, we are forced to choose: Watch the game on big, awesome, shiny televisions, or eat and drink delicious things. Why can’t the two occur in the same place more often? Parlor Sports may bridge the divide. Bartenders serve cocktails and craft beer, and there are sweet and spicy wings, corn dogs, and pepperoni rolls on offer (“It’s a home-made hot pocket,” the menu says). Or share the ParlorPile — house-made chips, pulled pork, cheese, sour cream, salsa, cheese sauce, and jalapenos.
