Count me out for Home Team.... Went there many years ago in between going to Mulligans & Baja to watch games... and never liked it. The service way back then was terrible, they never had the sound on, the place was super crowded.... so if you had to go to the restroom you were screwed... and several of us ended up getting food poisoning from there. And for the most part we've never been back since. Sure things can change over time I guess, but the few of my friends who have gone there once or twice more recently said no without hesitation when Home Team was brought up as an alternative.City beach has great bartenders but a couple of the managers are total dicks. Also, can get kind of a weird crowd in there.
Love the people that work in gus' but service can grind to a halt when it gets full. Place could also use some updates.
I was looking online at the new topgolf and it looks really cool but I just feel wrong in my heart watching vcu games in Henrico (even if it's just over the line)
I voted for home team because their beer bucket specials are solid, food is solid and they have a great tv setup and great patio all while being close to campus.
I think a bunch of us are going to try out city beach first.... to see what it's like. See what the crowd, service, setup is like... and go from there.
This season is probably going to be one big case of Trial by Error til we find a new spot.
