OT - Michigan Bar in Barcelona

Submitted by MGoShtoink on October 27th, 2011 at 12:39 PM

Does anyone in the community know of a Michigan friendly bar in Barcelona, Spain to watch Michigan games?

Two good friends of mine, both M grads, are there on their honeymoon and want to watch the game this weekend with some M fans.

I checked the Bar Locator post and didn't see anything for Barcelona.  I also did a few site searches, but to no avail. 

Many thanks!

Hey guys, I know this is off topic, but this seemed like the perfect thread to post in. My friend's cousin's girlfriend's father is traveling on business to Zanzibar this week and doesn't know a place where he can catch this weeks episode of "Inside Michigan Football" with other M fans. Anyone know a place (didn't see it on the spreadsheet)? Crazy right? This guy just loves the Hoke-Brandstater dynamic and can't go a week without watching.

I studied abroad in Barcelona while I was a student at UM. There definitely isn't a "Michigan" bar like you'll find in NYC or Chicago over there but there are some places where you can find American sports. I think your friends' best bet is calling the George and Dragon Pub and asking if they can play the game. It's a longshot but they played NFL games there on Sundays and say they'll try and cater to any request.

...during football season and then to make it worse, they take their honeymoon during football season also. Unacceptable.

I am getting married the weekend BEFORE football starts next season and we are not going on the honeymoon until Winter after CFB is done. That is a good time to leave anyway since the weather is at its peak of "suckness" in January here in Cleveland.
