The rails over this Woodside sports bar’s front windows might deter some from wandering in, but Starting Gate probably wouldn't want those wimps, anyway. This place reverberates with a back-slapping, brawny, hard-drinking spirit. There’s something going on most nights: occasional bouts of beloved Irish card game "25," darts, and the top European soccer leagues (Series A, English Premier League, Bundesliga) on the television. If the testosterone inside overwhelms, the outdoor patio offers an escape.
