Recently the hubs and I were invited to the Grand Opening and VIP party at The Princeton Sports Bar & Grill. We were thrilled to be invited and be one of the first to check out a new pub in one of our favorite towns, Princeton, NJ.
Many of you may remember The Princeton Sports Bar & Grill as Sotto Ristorante or even The Annex. Boy has it changed. Owner John Procaccini added 15 hi-def flat screen TVâ€™s around the bar, so you will never miss a game. Finally thereâ€™s a sports bar in town! Itâ€™s the perfect place to grab a drink after work, watch a game and for of-age college students to hang out.
Energy filled the room at the VIP party. Outstanding appetizers were passed around. I especially liked the buffalo shrimp. We also tested out the crab fries with cheese which were delish as well.
While there, I dubbed Dan the bartender as â€œThe Best Bartender in Mercer Countyâ€. First of all I must say that Dan makes a mean dirty martini, but what we loved most about him was his personality. Dan was so full of life, what you want your bartender to be. He was personable, fun and mingled with the customers. So often we go out on the town and the bartenders are just miserable and lack a personality. Not Dan! Dan really is the man at The Princeton Sports Bar & Grill.
Besides finding â€œThe Best Bartender in Mercer Countyâ€, our night was filled with a few other surprises. We ran into Doug Palmer, former Mayor of Trenton.
Ed Tseng was also there in high spirits signing his book â€œGame. Set. Life.â€
To top the evening off, we chatted it up a bit with famed Princeton professor Dr. Cornel West.
Talk about a party! We had some night out!
So head on over to The Princeton Sports Bar & Grill, tell Dan I sent you. Dress your best, because you never know who you might run into.
