Fun is what you make of it. I had tons of fun this weekend. Birthdays always seem to bring out everyone you haven’t seen in a while. It was nice to see old friends and have drinks with some new ones.
One of the places I went to and want to give a shout out to is Tom’s NFL Bar in Miami Springs. This is my 2nd visit to Tom’s and for both occasions I had a good time. Tom’s has good bar food (burgers, chicken fingers, etc). I can’t give the service an A+ rating because the waitress forgot my beer and I had to remind her, but the bartendar on Saturday was nice and served me pretty promptly. The prices are decent and the atmosphere is good as well. It’s not overly crowded, which can be nice. And the crowd that does show up is a mix of mid 20’s-40’s crowd.
They have a Trivia/kareoke night on Wednesday which is hosted by very fun dj’s. Let me tell you this is a great improvement from the horrible dj at Grid Iron in Kendall. I highly recommend joining the Trivia game, since it’s really fun guessing the questions and trying to win the prizes and raffle.
They also have a pool room with 3 tables or so to play for $1. Which to me is a great plus, even if they are cheap tables. Overall this place is a good time if you go with good company. Another thing I wanted to note is that it looks well kept and not as dark as other dive bars. I think this adds to the place. It doesn’t feel as if you are hiding in a cave somewhere 😉
So visit Tom’s. Their website can be found below:
