Seven South Florida Bars Every Steelers Fan Should Visit

Heinz Field is almost 1,200 miles away from South Florida. That's like 16 hours by car. But even if you manage to hitchhike your way past the Appalachian Mountains and West Virginia's backwoods, chances are you probably won't be able to land a ticket.

But no need to fret! Geographically isolated from the Steeler Nation, South Florida is in many ways an honorary outpost, and on any given game, you can find yourself a cozy bar to either praise Mike Tomlin or crucify him with other like-minded Steelers fans who bleed black and gold just like 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.
