It's like you're at a sporting event, but you're not. Let's dive in to this 'Sports & Social' idea.

I love Rockford but I'm from Schaumburg, so I'm always keeping up to date with what's happening in my hometown and I recently saw a story on the Daily Herald website about 'Sports & Social,' coming to Schaumburg.

So I had to dig deeper. What does 'Sports & Social' mean?

Basically it's somewhere to watch sports and be social but it's NOT a stadium.

Then I realized I'd actually been to one in St. Louis... right outside of a stadium. Boom, mind blown.

It's a pretty cool concept, screens everywhere, tons of food and drink options... the Sports & Social in St. Louis is actually part of their Ballpark Village and their website describes it as:

A one-of-a-kind sports bar, restaurant and social gaming venue The ultimate sports club house, featuring over 20 high definition LED TV's and a media wall, showcasing the top sports watching events year round, equipped with Shuffle Board, Foosball, Ping Pong, Bubble Hockey, Skeeball, Mini Bowling, and more!

Plus it's a restaurant and that food was good!

We have to wait a bit before it comes to Schaumburg though, it's slated for a 2023 debut near the Schaumburg Top Golf, which sounds pretend but then I realized we're a quarter of the way through with 2021 already, so I guess it won't be too long!
