But isn't it about time bar patrons looked up and cheered as you did yours?
We know just the place to make that happen—introducing the Video Game Menu at Bull & Bear, the best excuse we've seen in a while for never leaving your bar booth.
You're already extraordinarily familiar with this stock market-themed sports bar's personal table taps—turns out, those were just practice joysticks (though you can keep practicing).
After you're nestled into one of three specially designated booths, your waitress will arrive with a tray of Xbox 360 controllers. A printed menu of games will be available starting next week, and you'll be happy to hear that titles include such college-couch favorites as NBA Live, Madden '09 and Street Fighter IV.
Maybe best of all, the action appears on the screen nearest the table, meaning other patrons can take a break from the real game to admire the way you slice up the defense.
Or the person.
