Five South Florida Bars Every Patriots Fan Should Visit

Gillete Stadium is a long way away. Like 1,400 miles away. Like a 22-hour-drive-by-car away. No one has the time or gas money for that. So it's easy to feel left out with all the magic happening over in Foxborough, Massachusetts (especially after their win against the Saints).

But it's all right. Because here in South Florida, there's a pocket of New England pride that can't think of any better way to spend its Sunday than with a lobster roll and the Pats game on. Its members are dressed in the same shade of blue and red and pronounce "coffee" the same way you do.

Jess Swanson is a staff writer at New Times. Born and raised in Miami, she graduated from the University of Miami’s School of Communication and wrote briefly for the student newspaper until realizing her true calling: pissing off fraternity brothers by reporting about their parties on her crime blog. Especially gifted in jumping rope and solving Rubik’s cubes, she also holds the title for longest stint as an unpaid intern in New Times history. She left the Magic City for New York to earn her master’s degree from Columbia University School of Journalism, where she spent a year profiling circumcised men who were trying to regrow their foreskins for a story that ultimately won the John Horgan Award for Critical Science Journalism. Terrified by pizza rats and arctic temperatures, she quickly returned to her natural habitat.
