An Evening Afternoon At: Bounce Deuce

Like we said, summer is over. It's fall. That means football. And sometimes that means headed to a bar to catch all the action. You know we like bars. We also enjoy football. So we joined some friends who had made a reservation at Bounce Deuce in the East Village to enjoy a day of NFL action. We showed up for the early games and this is what we observed.

Pros
1. Every game in HD - nuff said.
2. Above average food - especially for a sports bar in the City, they took it to a higher level. Let's not go crazy now. It wasn't next level, but still pretty good.
3. Super tall 3 foot beer keg things - A nice touch. You could order beer once and not need the waitress for at least 25 minutes. Which as we will explain, comes in handy.
4. Reservations - A nice touch, especially since this place was jammed from wall to wall.

Cons
1. Noise - This place was beyond loud. The volume for the main game was pumping through the place at level 11. You had to scream at the waitress to order.
2. Service - Not the best. Expectations are never high for a sports bar on a busy Sunday, but this certainly didn't meet the minimum requirements. Misplaced food, slow delivery and a bit too much confusion for the staff.
3. Temperature - Uh, it's still 90 degrees outside. Where was the AC? Requests to turn it on went unfounded.

Overall, the negatives outweighed the positives. Despite the rowdy crowd having fun, the heat and the noise made it hard to interact with our table. Alas, we have 16 more weeks to get it right.

I want BBQ that makes me feel ill afterwards. Also, your mac and cheese tastes like B.O.

May I suggest you reopen this juke joint as a sports bar?
