The preseason excitement, the fantasy drafts, the fatty food; it could only mean one thing: Football seasoning is ramping up. All across South Florida, sports bars slinging wings and burgers, beers and shots will be prepping for their Sunday rituals. But finding a good sports bar isn't just as easy as popping into a barstool. You need a place that offers good food at decent prices, a sizable beer list, comfortable digs, and a whole lot of TVs so you can watch the game you want. Well, here are five local sports bars that won't give you a false start this football season:
Mugs - Do you hate dive bars? Do you want sports, sports, and more sports
without the risk of developing lung cancer secondhand? You couldn't get
a more smoke-free, simple environment than Mug's on Oakland.
Ironically, there are no mugs, just pints, and sports -- 14 TVs' worth
to monopolize your attention. Young, college-aged faces fill the space.
Gators and Hurricanes beware, though; this is 'Noles territory. Mugs
serves game-day staples like hamburgers, wings, nachos, and fries.
