Okay were not exactly girls, mid 30's. Meeting girlfriends Super Bowl Weekend in Portalnd. When we booked we didn't realize it was the weekend of the big game. We all actually enjoy watching football and are looking for a place that will have some good food, tasty drinks and ability to watch game. Close to The Nines Hotel will be great.

      If trendy sports bar is what you are after, try On Deck or Blitz.

      if you are looking for more laid back and full of real sports fans, Claudia's would get my vote.

        As someone who lives downtown and frequents the nightlife here's a list for you:

        -Thirsty lion (previously mentioned, good bar, kinda commercial) SW 2nd and Ash

        -On Deck (its in the Pearl, good sports bar) NW Kearney between 12th and 13th

        -Paddy's Bar and Grill (they have fewer tv's but they have the biggest alcohol assortment in Portland, excellent bartenders, good ambiance) SW 1st and Yamill

        -Buffalo Wild Wings (meh! why did I put this on the list?) SW Morrison between 3rd and 4th

        - Blitz Pearl (good bar, might be fratty that night) NW 10th and Couch

        - Life of Riley Tavern (good food and drink, wider beer assortment) NW 10th and Everett

        Good luck ladies and enjoy your time in Portland!
