We’ve been waiting months for it…football season is BACK!

While the sting isn’t healed from last season (please, don’t tell us to get over it), this year is another chance to make it all right again.

Finn McCool’s – This Irish pub is also known as the city’s premier soccer hub. There are several TV’s around the pub so no matter were you are, you’ll get a good view, and even a 8’4″ projection screen.

Revolution – The music during the games is great and there’s a huge projection screen inside and outside, depending on the weather. There’s also outdoor seating, in case the bar area get too tight, which it usually does during games.
