For a while the only way to buy alcohol on the UH campus was during sporting events (thank god Roberston Stadium serves beer) or at Chili’s, with the latter being nearly as terrifying as sobriety. Three years ago, though, three partners opened the Den, offering daily specials and cheap Imperial pints across from the fancy campus gym. (Yeah, the people-watching on the patio is pretty good. As it is from inside, apparently.) They show every televised UH game, of course, and the place gets packed for the big ones.
