The phrase ‘13th step’ is Alcoholics Anonymous slang for hooking up with your sponsor, but what the practice has to do with this glossy, laid-back sports bar is hard to suss out. Apart from the vaguely illicit name, Step plays it down the middle: beer pong, flat screens, and a fully stocked kitchen with greasy favorites and dangerous options like bacon-egg-and-cheese sliders. The draft list consists of the usual suspects (Bud, Bud Light, Coors Light, Sam Adams, Blue Moon, Stella Artois, etc.) with a couple of seasonal items mixed in. The generous half-off happy hour and daily specials ($3 shots and the like) keep the budget-conscious sports fan happy.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
