Jocks & Jills isn't about campy war nostalgia though, it's about watching sports. When men gather in bars, it's very often to watch people with great physiques jumping around in a manner that gets us worked up. On weekend afternoons and Monday nights, we watch men playing sports on TV. On weekend nights, we watch women in strip bars.
For the "looking at men and cheering" times, Jocks & Jills is ideal. TVs are visible nearly everywhere in the bar. It's heaven for sports fans and pranksters with universal remotes. J&J Midtown's unique attribute is its deck. It's the only place I can think of where you can watch a big-screen TV outside. And because the deck faces Peachtree Street, the place has an urban feeling (if you're into that sort of thing).
There's a stellar selection of beers, Champagne for when your team wins the big game, and for those of you who entirely miss the point of sports bars, White Zinfandel. The food selection ranges from sports bar staples like burgers and wings to lighter, more frou-frou fare like the Vermont Harvest Salad (garnished with raisins and toasted walnuts). Other than my own couch surrounded by beer and Doritos, there's no better place to watch sports.

Eugene, how could there be crowds if no one went there?
Pretty soon the Kimball House will be so popular that nobody goes there due to…
Hope everyone had a great time over the weekend and enjoyed some tasty food.
Whimsical? That makes no sense.
