The 26-year-old Chicago man shot at a downtown Ann Arbor dance club is suing every bar at which the gunman drank before the shooting.
I thought this was worth posting as many of us have visited the bars in question.
More specifically, Oakland County, Waterford/West Bloomfield/Bloomfield/Farmington Hills area.
With the State game going on at the same time as ours, and the fact that we suck and they're good, I fully expect the turnout at these bars to be like 90% State fans 10% us. I'd prefer to watch the game somewhere there's not an overwhelming number of those mouthbreathers, and that will have the sound turned on to our game.
So far I called the Buffalo Wild Wings on 14 and Orchard Lake and they don't know what they're doing. They theoretically can split the sound but not sure how that would work in reality. They also have a back room so maybe if some other Michigan fans show up they can just throw us all back there.
Anyways, if anyone knows any better options that'd be super.
I left Ann Arbor this summer for an internship in Northern Virginia, Fairfax to be exact. I was wondering if anyone familiar to Fairfax/DC metro could point me to a good bar or two in the area. Are there any Michigan friendly bars? Help a fellow Mgoblog member find a good place to get a drink after work. It would be greatly appreciated.
Here is a list of the team bars in Indianapolis for the BTT. They look to be the same as last year with the obvious addition of Nebraska.
Celebrate with like-minded fans at the following restaurants:
- Illinois - Ram Restaurant & Big Horn Brewery
- Indiana - Kilroy's Bar & Grill
- Iowa - Weber Grill Restaurant
- Michigan - O'Reilly's Irish Bar and Restaurant
- Michigan State - Slippery Noodle Inn
- Minnesota - Rock Bottom Brewery
- Nebraska - Champions Sports Bar and Restaurant at Indianapolis Marriott Downtown
- Northwestern - Buffalo Wings and Rings
- Ohio State - Champps Americana
- Penn State - Harry & Izzy's
- Purdue - Scotty's Brewhouse
- Wisconsin - Buffalo Wild Wings Grill & Bar
I moved to Indy in June, and I've been to all of these except Buffalo Wings and Rings. Jealous that Penn State has Harry & Izzy's because that place is awesome and fits the Michigan fanbase to a T. O'Reilly's was fun last year, but it is pretty small, hopefully the weather will be nice enough for outside seating, but it is snowing here today.
Hope so see some of you down here, I'll probably repost the list on Wednesday or Thursday if it's cool with the mods.
OK, I looked at the list of UM friendly bars and could not find one for Monterrey, Mexico. I could not even find an alumni association there to reach out to. Anyone have any idea of a bar that will show the game this weekend there?
If not, do you know if the game will be available via streaming?
Calling all University of Florida graduate students, or any other Michigan fans trapped in the heart of Gator Nation (I know you're out there):
Where are you watching the UM-ND game this Saturday? Any good non-Gator'd-out bars? I was going to try to find one it on TV at one of the midtown bars, but I almost guarantee I won't be able to hear it over the Gators game going on simultaneously which will be blaring at all UF bars... Oh, and I don't have cable TV, so that's out.
Side note: Despite having many recent successes in sporting events, the UF student body seems to have meek showings to sporting events when compared to Michigan. They have a bigger student body and smaller stadium, but the demand for student tickets is much smaller compared to Michigan. You make me proud, Blue.
