Local sports bar to celebrate 25 years with a week of special events

A local sports bar has made it to the quarter-century mark, and will celebrate with a week’s worth of special events.

"To celebrate 25 years at Bolt's Sports Café, we have partnered with Northmont Band and the Football boosters to help raise money for their organizations," a Bolts spokesperson said. In addition, a series of raffles throughout the week will raise money for the Weebolts peewee football and cheer programs.
