Make no mistake: this is no ordinary sports bar. It’s a shrine to one of Stamford’s favorite sons, owner Bobby Valentine. Born in the city, he was a star ball player in high school and, up until 2002, manager of the New York Mets. Think of this, along with the neighboring Victory Deli, as Bobby’s annuity, frequented by his local legion of friends and fans. The place is filled with memorabilia and, of course, when a good game is on, with sports fans. The pub fare is just a cut above the usual stadium eats but the beer is cold and the crowd, while spirited, is not generally rowdy.
