If you’re not able to make the trip to Atlanta to watch UCF in the Peach Bowl on Monday, you might want to find a sports bar where you can watch the game with other fans.
Actually, it’s officially the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl, so thank God the game wasn’t scheduled for Sunday.
If you’re out Waterford Lakes way, consider stopping by Castaway’s Sports Bar & Grill, which opened recently. The place has plenty of big-screen televisions — is huge-screen tv a category? — and enough room for everybody from section 102 of Spectrum Stadium.
The first time I visited Turquaz, a Turkish restaurant on International Drive, it was a Friday night, somewhere around 8 o’clock, and the place was empty. It was open for business, but eerily quiet.
The second time I visited was at lunchtime, and the number of patrons had doubled: A single woman sat on the patio working on a laptop and smoking a hookah. I had the dining room all to myself for the duration of my meal.
