A Cool Fast Break at Skinny Mike's

A cod beer, great food, the comeback of the Lakers on several flat screens (make that twenty 42" screens) in one cool place, there's absolutely nothing better. Just a typical game day at Skinny Mike's.

Expats Scott Nagle and Mike Lyttle's passion for sports and good food led to the creation of Skinny Mike's, which opened only this month. Not content with the current sports bars in the metro, Scott and Mike wanted to bring a piece of home in their new sports bar, offering a variety of drinks and classic sports bar grub. Just the place for a cold beer while watching the latest NBA games...or any sport.

The classic long bar is the place to be at Skinny Mike's, with your very own flat screen in front of you. Skinny Mike's friendly staff, dressed in sports-inspired referee's shirts, always makes sure you have a cold one. Cool. 
Skinny Mike's also offers a full inventory of imported beers, so you'll definitely feel at home at Skinny Mike's. Skinny Mike's also offers large comfortable booths, if you feel like being a couch potato. Very cool.

Skinny Mike's offers a wide range of local and imported beers, including my favorite. Skinny Mike's has an impressive inventory of more than 100 brands, and if you're looking for a particular beer, Skinny Mike's will find a way to get it for you.

And no, Skinny Mike's is not a real person at all. According to Scott Nagle, "Skinny Mike's" is a representation of a true sports fan, "one who cares more about great food, cold beer, and sports more than breathing." And that's exactly the vibe one gets as soon as you enter Skinny Mike's. There is, after all, a "Skinny Mike" in all of us. NBA, NFL, MLB, UEFA, MMA, F1, PBA, you name's all here at Skinny Mike's. And there's no better way to enjoy your sports fix than with a cold brew and some real good grub at Skinny Mike's, and here are some of Skinny Mike's bestsellers...

Stuffed Baked Potato Skins (P 235), baked potatoes filled with assorted cheeses and topped with sour cream, bacon and chives on a bed of shredded cabbage. Rich, creamy, homey and comforting, a perfect match with a cold beer. The crisp bacon bits add that extra kick of flavor, and the cheese simply completes the dish. A great starter before any live sports telecast, and a great dish for half time.

Boneless Buffalo Bites (P 295), boneless chicken coated in buffalo sauce and served with blue cheese dressing and celery sticks. The cooling heat gradually builds up, again, another perfect match with a cold beer. The subtle crispness adds a delicious texture and the blue cheese gives it a perfect slam dunk of flavor.

Cheesy Pepper Poppers (P 345), roast peppers stuffed with cheese and bacon and served with marinara sauce. The rich cheese and the subtle heat of the peppers blend perfectly with the rich marinara. And that marinara sauce is something else...awesome.

Angus Balls (P 295), flambeed Angus meatballs topped with marinara sauce and melted mozzarella. Hearty and filling, the full flavored Angus beef and marinara is another cool combination play, a personal favorite.

And leave room for dessert. Camille's Apple Pie topped with vanilla ice cream, a cool dessert guaranteed to make another Laker loss a lot easier. Homey comfort food at Skinny Mike's. Good eats.

Great food, a variety of drinks at the long bar, and twenty flat screens. Now that's a cool sports bar.

Scott Nagle, Partner, and Mike Lyttle, CEO, Skinny Mike's dynamic duo and hard core sports fans. Grab a beer and get the inside track on your favorite sport with Scott and Mike. 

Chef Benny, the creative genius behind Skinny Mike's classic sports bar grub. If there's anything you'd like to have that's not in the menu, Chef Benny can whip it up for you. If they have the ingredients on hand, and if you can wait at least until the second half, Chef Benny is the man for the challenge. 

And this simply says it all. While the Lakers are off to a shaky start, you can always depend on Skinny Mike's to have a great time. Special thanks to Scott and Camille Nagle,  Mike Lyttle and Chef Benny for an awesome time at Skinny Mike's.
