Vara's may be a bit of a trek for some folks, but this friendly sports bar has been serving up brews to thirsty neighbors for 25 years running. Littered with local sports décor, the bar provides several televisions and a host of tables to sit and watch a game. A pair of pool tables is tucked away in the corner, and every Thursday the bar hosts live music. Vara's is no less enjoyable for being beer-only, which is doubly true if the massive back patio is open. Home of the E-5 Tailgaters, Vara's back 40 has seen many a cookout and benefit.
