Does anyone know of any bars or restaurants that will be airing Wimbledon over the weekend. Preferably not tourist traps.
Oh, you'd be shocked. I have friends who wake up at 6 a.m. on a Saturday to go to a sports bar to watch certain round football and rugby matches available only over some expensive, rare satellite feed. A lot of pubs charge admission to these; some just make you buy breakfast ... and/or a beer.
AC, according to this website (generally a good resource for this kind of question), it's being broadcast at the Playwright on W. 35th: http://www.wherewewatch.com/events/20...
Opia Restaurant, on the second floor of the renaissance hotel on 57th and lex, shows the matches and serves mimosas etc w/ breakfast. I only know this because my wife had family in town and we met over there for some pancakes (really good BTW) and they had the matches on a big screen - a nice diversion as I don't speak Flemish, and my wife's family does not speak English...
Just saw your 12-5 - - Opia, still a good place.
