BUMPED SO PEOPLE CAN ASK THAT QUESTION IN A PRE-MADE THREAD TODAY - LSA

Hello MgoCollective,

Does anyone know of Michigan bars in Vancouver, BC?  I'll be up there for the weekend with my folks, and I need a place to watch the game, preferably with fellow Wolverines.  I'm staying downtown (a few blocks from Canada Place), and there's plenty of sports bars, but which one?

I've already checked the map, the thread, the tag, and searched the rest of the board (all I get are posts about hockey riots...).

 

Thanks in advance!

MOD EDIT - Repurposed to avoid clutter, but preserving OP's question to start discussion. - LSA

OP EDIT - Thanks LSA - please feel free to move to Diary (per somebody below's suggestion) or triage as needed.  I only posted this because I exhausted just about all other options.

I posted this in the Michigan bar locator sticky, but, quite reasonably, no response.  Does anybody know where I could watch the Michigan-EMU game (with volume) this Saturday in Fargo, ND?  It's an 11 am CT game on Big Ten Network.  Good news is the Gophers aren't playing at the same time, to the extent that matters.

I've checked the sticky and searched the site to no avail -- does anyone know of a UM-friendly bar in the Albany-Schenectady-Troy region of New York?  I'll be away on fall break next week, and although I know it will probably be on at any bar (or living room), I'm curious if there is a known contingent of Wolverines in the tri-city area.

So, I'm from Columbus and am coming up with some of my boys for the Sparty game.  Coming Friday, leaving Sunday.  What do you guys think is the best spot on campus to catch the night football games that actually has audible game sound, and not music blasting through the speakers?

Thanks!

Calling all Michigan fans in DC...

 

Does anyone know of a bar that'll have the game on Saturday? My cable was just knocked out yesterday (dumb shit roommate!!!) and Comcast can't get here to fix it until next Monday.

 

Being near a metro stop is preferable but obviously seeing the game is my #1 priority so anywhere short of Baltimore is okay with me.

 

Thanks,

The Michigan Daily is reporting that Mitch's Place on South U abruptly closed for good last night because of money issues and the recession.

Mitch's was kind of trashy and I don't think it was anybody's favorite bar in Ann Arbor (or even on South U), but nonetheless who among us can't say that some nights we just randomly ended up at Mitch's?

I, for one, know that I'll miss their cheapish drinks and strange location. And hopefully Packard Pub ends up being a good bar when it opens.

Alumni Bar Heresy?

If you are a Michigan alum in Baltimore, you were treated to this news on Monday night, via your email box:

"Hey fellow Wolverines,

For the big MSU game this week we have decided to spice things up and get some (friendly) rivalry going with the area Spartan fans. We have invited them to come watch with us...so come prepared to do some eating, drinking and cheering with your friends...and some rivals! Thanks to [name redacted] for reaching out to their alumni contact and setting this up!

Crazy Lil's in Fed Hill is the place to watch.... THIS WEEK IS HUGE so come out and show everyone that you bleed maize and blue. Let's make sure that our MICHIGAN BAR is full of MICHIGAN FANS!!!!!"

Maybe it is just me, but I can't think of anything more unpleasant than going to a Michigan bar and being forced to watch the game with a bunch of MSU fans. After sleeping on it for a couple days, I still think that it is a horrible, horrible idea. Am I wrong in this or does this qualify as alumni bar heresy and should be forever banned?

I'm sure that some MSU fans are perfectly pleasant people, but this week I would prefer that you stay the hell away from me. Shame on the Baltimore alumni bar organizer(s) for this. I may have to make the trip into DC instead...

I'm headed into Philadelphia this weekend and wanted to make sure I caught the game. Does anyone know of a good Michigan sports bar? I noticed the U of M club goes to Fox and Hound (15th and Spruce), so I'll probably head there, but I wanted to see if anyone could confirm or had a better place.

Thanks and Go Blue.
