With a drop panel ceiling, duct tape on the booths, and plastic chairs, Courtside in East Cambridge isn’t pretty. But it’s got its charm, and thanks to a bunch of TVs, arcade games, and karaoke, it’s basically the rec room basement you dreamed about having when you were 10. The food should probably only be consumed after you’ve had a few drinks, but since the drinks are cheap and not watered down, you’re going to want to have a few drinks anyway.
