CU Beer Weekend; June 4 (NHL/NBA Finals)

It's the weekend. Well, almost. Where are you drinking? Where are you watching the Blackhawks? Do you even care about the NBA Finals?

If you are looking for a place to watch the NHL Finals, you'll have to be selective in your choice of bars. Not all of them have the Versus Network (for the games at Philly). After tonight, the rest of the games are on NBC.

Game 4 tonight will be fun to try to find.

I know it will be on at:

Buffalo Wild Wings (both locations in CU)
Old Chicago
Crane Alley
Firehaus (official Blackhawks Bar)
Kam's (official Blackhawks Bar)
Jupiter's at the Crossing
Tumble Inn

Places I know that won't have it are:

Radio Maria (although Jacob will yell out scoring updates)
Blind Pig
Blind Pig Brewery
Seven Saints
Mike n' Molly's

My recommendation for the best beer is, of course, Crane Alley. The best view is at Hooters, the best pizza is probably Jupiters at the Crossing, unless you like Old Chicago; the best wings is BW. The place that most smells like vomit is Kam's.

So find a place to sit back and watch the game; and go Blackhawks!

(I'm hoping it's on at Guido's)

Seven Saints
