Tradesman’s is part BBQ restaurant and part sports bar - and it’s huge. It can seat over 200 people between its two floors and has one of those enormous multi-screen TVs behind the main bar that’s constantly playing so many different games you may feel like you’re being brainwashed in sort of a Clockwork Orange technique. But, especially during March Madness and playoff seasons, it’s a good place to multitask while sharing a plate of brisket and tri-tip with your 10 closest friends.
