Nate and my favorite townie bar is the Sports Page. Located in Historic Downtown Bloomington (thats what the menu says, but it is really just a strip mall) it is a great place with great food. Best cheese curds, burgers, and fries. Nate and I usually eat and drink there - with appetizers- for under $20. Not to mention Kate. Kate is the waitress at the Sports Page. Lets just say that she clearly has had her fair share of fun - and she isn't all mentally there any more. Kate says a lot of 'I know - riiiiggght', oh, and has a little crush on Nate.
The ambiance of the Sports Page is something else - where else can you find orange shag carpet (besides my freshman year dorm room) and wood paneling on the walls - classy!
Well, the Sports Page is now closed for 5 weeks - they are under going a major face lift. The Sports Page might actually be nice inside once this is done.
We drove by last night to see the progress, and found a website that we can track the construction.
Below is when they first started the demo - you can still see the wood panels and the orange carpet.
And this is their progress as of yesterday.
