There is a chance I will be in AA Sept 2. Where does everyone like to hang out to watch the game? I am looking for a good bar to post up, drink a few, and watch us hand Florida their first loss.
As part of an annual Michigan football road trip with friends, we are traveling to Iowa City for the game weekend in November. Have a hotel already, but am looking for recommendations from the MGoBlog community on things to do and places worth checking out, e.g., good breakfast spots, other restaurants, good beer bars / breweries, sports bars, pre-game related events, etc.
Many thanks in advance. Go Blue!
BUMPED SO PEOPLE CAN ASK THAT QUESTION IN A PRE-MADE THREAD TODAY - LSA
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?
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.
Some other M fans and I will be in San Francisco this weekend, and we're thinking about heading to the Oregon @ Stanford game. The game starts at 7:30 EST, so it shouldn't be a problem catching the UM game at a nearby bar/tailgate and then heading to the game. Anyone have advice on acquiring tickets (scalp vs buy online before), tailgating, bars, places to see on campus, or anything out there?
We'll be out there for a week so we'll have plenty of time to explore SF itself. I've heard that Palo Alto isn't the most happenin of places, but heading to a game seems like a good time nonetheless. Much appreciated in advance.
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?
