Going to a sports bar usually means loud, rowdy crowds of people who are certain the players can hear them through the TV as long as they yell loud enough. Founding Fathers in Grad Hospital, though, is a much quieter, more upscale version of a sports bar that’s good for when you’re watching the game with your in-laws or clients. They also have some solid bar food that’s a little fancier than what you’d normally see - things like blackened ahi tuna tacos and Korean fried wings.
