Coming into town for the weekend... any sports bars or places to watch NFL early Sunday morning?

      In Tempe, preferably something towards the airport, but would think a 15-20mi. radius should be ok.

      Never been there so I don't know what the area or traffic will be like.

        The airport is pretty close to the Mill Ave/ASU districts in Tempe, so I'd send you to Four Peaks Brewing Company. Has it all -- great food, finely crafted beer, atmosphere (it's in a historic brick building; a converted dairy, and has lots of open-air seating) and lots of football fans. Open around ten, I believe.

        Don't go it you're a Packers fan, though. Packers fans have their own places to go.

        My second runner-up would be the Half Moon sports bar in south Tempe, but only for their early-open times and their $5 Bucket-O-Bacon. The concept just tickles me, I can't really get over it. Although watching football in a joint where they regularly serve people buckets-o-bacon leaves one smelling kind of porky.

          Bucket-O-Bacon? I'm intrigued... more info please.

            You know, I wouldn't even bank on the availability of the buckets-o-bacon. I checked their online menu and it's not listed, maybe they got tired of doing it.

            Kind of makes me wonder if there exists a long German word that perfectly captures the meaning of the conflicting emotions one feels after eating half a pound of bacon over Sunday morning football -- part salty smoked pork satisfaction and part artery-clogging shame.
