When traveling out of town, you often seek things that make you feel more comfortable; things that allow you to relax and enjoy the atmosphere and for that matter get a drink and possibly some good food. And while we’re on the subject, why not find a spot that caters to those demands and also has a sports atmosphere along with a big screen and coverage of the latest games?
Being new to a city is always an adventure, but what if the only cultural enlightenment you’re after is a good sports bar where you can unwind and have a good time? Depending upon where you find yourself, there are several ways you might track down a good one.
First, check with a local—if you’re taking a cab, ask the cabby where he goes. If that doesn’t work, there are usually some local papers that are advertising for your business and offering the very thing you’re looking for. It almost goes without saying that you can check the local nightlife by going online and searching from there. Though this is definitely a good start, that approach is a bit like taking a shotgun where a rifle is what is needed. You will want to narrow the search.
