If Kent State loses to UNLV, Sidelines has the beer specials to dull the pain

Posted By on Thu, Mar 20, 2008 at 12:13 PM

Wear your blue-and-gold today if you plan to root on Kent State on with Mike Abdoo and his ex-college roomies at Brunswick’s Sidelines Sports Bar & Grill. The club’s 12 big screens are going to blare the ESPN broadcast of KSU’s game against Nevada-Las Vegas in the first round of the NCAA tourney at 2:55 this afternoon. “They’re active. They’re athletic. They kick ass on the road,” Abdoo says of the No. 9-seeded Golden Flashes (28-6), who take on 8th-seeded UNLV (26-7). “It’s going to be a fun game to watch.” Sidelines’ afternoon-drink specials will help make that happen. But don’t call it a happy hour; the club bills it as its “ecstatic hour” by slashing $1 off all drinks and charging $2 for every flavored bomb shot until 7 p.m. every day. By that time tonight, Abdoo and company will be primed for more hoops action as the No. 6-seeded USC (21-11) takes on No. 11 Kansas State (20-11) at 7:10 p.m., and No. 3 Wisconsin (29-4) battles No. 14 Cal State-Fullerton (24-8) at 9:40 p.m. The bar is located at 1165 Pearl Road in Brunswick. Call 330-220-0888 for details. – Cris Glaser
