Hockey Playoffs?

Hi folks,

Does anyone know where I might go to watch the hockey playoffs, enjoy a cold one, and maybe even find some good eats? I adore Texas but this time of the year's a bit rough for a displaced Canuck.

      I really hate to recommend this place as I had such a negative experience there a few weeks back (see the fish & chips thread) but Bagpipes on Research has TVs everywhere and they will put any game you want on any one of the TVs. I saw one of the mgrs put the Bruins game on for a table.

      Not too many hockey fans here in Austin. Let's Go Rangers!

        Hmm... I may check out Bagpipes since it's much closer to where I live. The servers make me really uncomfortable, honestly, but at this point I'd do anything to catch the game.

        thanks to you both.

          Sure hope you're not rootin' for the Sens coco .....

          Third Base is not a bad option for bar-grub. I'm hoping they'll have games on. I like those philly cheesesteak eggrolls !

    2. I was at Champions downtown last night and they had hockey on. They're pretty accomodating to customer requests for games. They have the $2 mystery beer all the time (it was Ziegen Bock last night by my best estimation). They have a pretty standard bar food menu, but it's not bad.

      1. more importantly, where can I find a Flyers game down here?

        1. Anybody found any new recommendations for tonight's Stanley Cup Final? Especially tough because it is competing with the NBA Eastern Conference Final (Game 7).

            Cover 3 had TVs on for both Spurs/Thunder game 6 and King/Devils Game 4 last Wednesday. Considering there's no basketball today they should have a lot of their TVs on the Stanley Cup Final game.
