Score big at the EndZone

Don't worry, a trip to The EndZone Sports Bar & Grill doesn't require any excessive physical exertion beyond an enthusiastic "cheers."

You could easily be fooled, though. The bar, set inside an old gymnasium next to the Johnston Mill Lofts in Bibb City, instantly brings to mind images of cheerleaders and home teams.

And you'll get that — while watching the many TVs that line The EndZone's interior.

Even though the party spot just celebrated its official grand opening last weekend, it has already made headway in carving out a niche among local sports fans.

But the bar is just as appealing to patrons who can't differentiate between a touchdown and a field goal. In addition its emphasis on sports, The EndZone hosts plenty of theme nights. Happy hour, which includes drink specials, is every day from 3-7 p.m.

Wednesdays are poetry nights, Thursdays are margarita nights and patrons in the military get discounts on Fridays. More promotions are slated for the future, from karaoke to blue-collar night.

Daily hours are 11:30 p.m. to midnight, and for lunch and dinner the party spot is just as friendly to children, offering Saturday and Sunday discounts for kids' meals.
