Finding the Right Rockville Sports Bar for You

Not all sports bars are created equal, and choosing the right location can make or break your experience. For some, any restaurant that receives a television signal will do. However, to achieve optimal viewing, there are some additional factors you’ll want to consider. 

Food

The game’s on the big screen, but what’s on the menu? In times of social distancing and friendship deprivation, you want to count on your taste buds to remain your best buds. Be sure to check out sports bars’ online menus to ensure that you’ll be treating them right. 

Theme

All sports bars strive to provide sports, food, and fun. Some, however, go the extra mile in providing a tailored cultural experience for fans of a certain team. Take a peek at social media and bar branding to make sure that you don’t go root for your favorites in enemy territory. Or worse — in a bar that’s showing the wrong game! 

Establishment

If you can’t be sitting courtside, the buzzing, welcoming environment of a sports bar may be your next best option. Do you prefer local dive-bars or classier decor? Indoor seating or patio access? Do you like to enjoy America’s favorite past-time with man’s best friend at your side? 

Rockville, Maryland’s expansive sports bar scene has it all — all that’s left is to find the perfect match for you. Fortunately, we’ve prepared a great line-up that’s sure to keep you cheering and beer-ing.

1. Topgolf 

Germantown’s Topgolf location allows you to not only watch the game, but also get into it! This restaurant knew that for true sports fans, 200 HD TVs and a full-service bar isn’t enough.

3. Quincy’s South Bar & Grille

Quincy’s South knows the best games don’t always go according to schedule. That’s why they’re open until 2 a.m. — ready to accommodate overtime, rain delays, and shootouts. This locally owned neighborhood favorite provides an infinity-edge TV, so no matter where you look there’s truly no bad seat in their American-style pub. 

They transform happy hour into happy hours, spanning from 11:30 to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. You can sit at the bar while they serve up 12 beers on-tap, or opt for outdoor patio seating.

Enter a competition of your own as you work your way up the spicy level of their 16 wing sauces. Daily specials mean no two visits will be the same, but every single one will be delicious.

This 6,000 square-foot garden is just your first clue into the restaurant’s affinity for all-things giant. Enjoy pretzels, nachos, and other sharable favorites while you take in the big game.

Enhanced Reporting

Your portal includes a selection of extremely useful reports. Reports are available in the “Reports” section, and are distinct from the financial statements. Unlike financial statements which are static records, Reports are dynamic real-time records that will update with current data every time you view them. 

Scroll down to learn more about Reports:

Navigate to the "Reports" module in your portal:

  • Keep in mind, these reports are dynamic records. They will refresh to display current information every time you view them. 

Enhanced Rent Roll Report:

  • The Enhanced Rent Roll Report will show the rent amount, last payment date, move-in date, lease expiration date, and security deposit amount for each of your tenants. 
  • It will also show a portfolio summary with occupancy percentage, vacancy loss, and more!

Unit Comparison Report:

  • If you own multiple units (or buildings) with Nomadic, you’ll get access to the Unit Comparison Report. 
  • This report enables you to quickly compare financial performance between your units at a glance without toggling between individual reports.

Financial Statements

Financial statements will be published to your portal on a monthly basis. The statements are found in your Documents library, and provide a historical record of all financial performance. The statements serve as a snapshot of financial performance over a given period, and are static documents (unlike Reports, the statements do not update/change in real-time).

Understanding the Ledger

Your portal includes a ledger with all transactions. The ledger is populated with data in real-time as transactions flow through our accounting software. Much of this information is also available in the Reports area, as well as the Statements in your Documents library, but the ledger is the most comprehensive resource for diving into the details. 

Please scroll through the sections below to get a better understanding of how to interpret the ledger. 

By default, transactions are sorted chronologically:

  • The date reflected in the lefthand column is the actual transaction date, not the “bill date”. This is the date the transaction was actually processed. 

If you have multiple properties with Nomadic, you'll see the address for each transaction in the "Location" column:

  • You can filter the ledger to look at just one property, all properties, or specific sets of properties. 
  • If you only have one property with us, you’ll just see the ledger for that property. 

The Description column displays the transaction type:

  • BILL: this is an expense transaction, such as for repair costs or management fees.
  • CHARGE: this is a transaction  billed to the tenant, most typically a rent payment. 
  • NACHA EXPORT: this is a credit we processed to your distribution account. This type of transaction is how you get paid! 

The Amount column shows the dollar value of each transaction:

  • Positive Amounts: if an amount is positive, it reflects a transaction that is payable to you. Typically, this will be a rent payment that we collected from your tenants. On occasion, a positive number could also signify a journal entry or credit adjustment. 
  • Negative Amounts:  if an amount is negative, this is a transaction that is either payable to Nomadic or is an amount that has already been paid to you. Typically this will be for repair costs or management/leasing fees. Owner draws (net distributions into your checking/savings account) also reflect as negative amounts, since they have already been paid to you. 

The Account Balance column shows a sum of positive/negative transactions at a given point in time:

  • Account Balance should always equal zero after a net distribution has been processed. When the balance is zero, this means that all expenses have been paid and you’ve received the remainder as net operating income, leaving a balance of zero (meaning: no one is due any money, as all funds have been distributed appropriately). 

Navigating the Propertyware Owner Portal

Your portal includes some extremely useful features that help you understand your property’s financial performance at a new level, with real-time transparency into every transaction.

How do net distributions work?

Net distributions keep your accounting clean and simple. Each month we’ll collect rent from the tenants, deduct any repair expenses for the previous month and any management/leasing fees for the current month, and credit the remaining net operating income to your account. 

You’ll receive a statement via email each time a net distribution is processed, and can view all transaction details in your Propertyware owner portal.
