SPORTS AND SOCIAL STEEL CITY
Sports and Social Steel City is one of Greensburg’s newest spots located on the top floor of the Live! Casino. The two level space features a 40 foot diagonally measured high definition LED TV, bowling lanes, a golf simulator, skeeball, and more. And to top it all off, they feature an extensive brunch menu that is so large, it is divided into six sections.
The “First things first” section features items more likened to breakfast. Treat yourself to a bowl of Boozy Cereal, or go with a healthier alternative, like their Yogurt Parfait with berries and granola.
For serious brunchers, the “Brunch so hard” section features tried and true late morning classics such as Country Biscuit Eggs Benedict and biscuits with country jalapeno gravy and fried sage. Or, try one of their more creative and inventive options from this section like the Tomato Avocado Bacon Scrapple Melt.
Maybe your ideal late morning-early afternoon meal is more on the pastry side of things? If so, The “Morning Dough Boys” section has just what you’re looking for. With options built around french toast made from brioche bread and waffles topped with different fruits, jams, syrups, and butters it’s safe to say your sweet tooth will be satisfied. Try the Banana Jammer French Toast or the Mix Berry Waffle, they both feature bacon jam!
The “Skillet” section includes three different skillet style brunch titled “West Coast”, “Texas”, and, “‘Merica”. Each option stays true to the name through its ingredients, with “Texas” including pork and beans and pico de gallo, and “West Coast” coming with baby arugula and hollandaise sauce.
Don’t forget a drink to wash down all that food. “Brunchtails” is how Sports and Social refers to its selection of brunch specific cocktails. Enjoy items ranging from a build your own bloody mary to a 34 oz. mug of domestic beer.
For those of us who are not fans of brunch food, the “Non-Brunchers” section has options like burgers and wings. And finally, for those of us who are just not that hungry, the “Little Things” section features options similar to that of a sides menu.
