In the evenings, the quiet strip malls that line Oakland Park Boulevard in east Fort Lauderdale seem to present no action, but the understated storefronts belie the hive of activity inside Mugs Sports Bar & Grill. A casual crowd plays Texas Hold 'Em at a table in the dining room of the bright, split-level establishment while couples chill and shoot pool in the raised bar area, which is separated from the restaurant area by a glass wall. Entertainment comes in the form of televised sports games and fights as well as regular weekly activities such as live bands on Thursdays, karaoke on Fridays, and poker on Tuesdays. Mugs offers a variety of food and drink specials throughout the week, like 40-cent wings and two-for-one drinks all night on Mondays, ten types of $3 tacos on Tuesdays, and Mug Night Wednesdays, when the purchase of a $3 mug (which you keep) gets you $1, $2, and $3 drafts. Select from a range of imports and domestics, including Guinness and Stella Artois. The regular two-for-one happy hour runs from 4 to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday. Mugs prides itself on its food. The menu transcends the venue's sports-bar aesthetic with escargots ($8.95), an ahi tuna appetizer with artichoke and caramelized onions ($11.95), and a range of Italian and seafood entrées. But, the chef admits, the most popular items are the buffalo wrap ($8.95) and wings.
