I've started putting together a google map with places to watch Michigan football games. So far, I've only put in the places I've been to, but I'd like to fill it in with Michigan bars nationwide. So, post a bar and a quick review in the thread, and I'll add it to the map.
Places to watch UM Football nationwide
there is a list somewhere.
Yeah, that'll teach me to search the site before posting. Bouje apparently has a spreadsheet here:
If it's cool with him, I'll just use that list as a starting point and copy everything over to the map.
EDIT - damn, you beat me to the link.
In Seattle the UM bar is Rocksports in West Seattle. Here's the address: 4209 SW Alaska St., Seattle, WA 98116-4524.
Rocksports is kind of like a BW3 but not a corporate chain. It's big and has TVs everywhere. The bar is divided into several rooms, of which the main one, dominated by the Michigan contingent, always has the Michigan game on a massive projection screen. They show other games on some of the smaller TVs scattered around the place.
The place is always packed on game days, so it can be hard to get a table and the service can get pretty slow. They serve average bar food and usually have a decent breakfast spread for the games that start at 9:00 Pacific. It's reasonably kid-friendly (provided you get there early enough to score a table).
Thanks, I've added it to the map. Is this an official alumni association bar?
The Mezzanine is the place to watch the games in Houston.
2200 Southwest Fwy
Houston, TX 77098
This is the official alumni bar in Houston.
Where are you watching the game tonite? I'm looking for a good place, this is the first game I haven't watched in person.
While South in Santa Monica is the Alumni Club's official LA West Side bar, Pitcher House in Redondo Beach is the South Bay bar. It's quasi-official in that the LA Alumni Club's newsletter cites South as the official bar, but suggests Pitcher House for those of us in the South Bay that don't want to slog through traffic to Santa Monica.

Redondo Beach, CA
I've got everything from Bouje's list in there too. It's actually pretty damn impressive when you zoom out and look at the whole US.
