The Uptown Tavern is littered with TVs, including a monster rooftop projection screen. Bask in the glow of televised sports while reaping its progressive Thursday night specials. From 7 to 9 p.m. domestic bottles and rail and call drinks are only a buck, increasing to a more than manageable $2 from 9 to 11 p.m. and $3 from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m.
