Brewing beer, curing meat, or making cheese?

Where is your favorite place to watch the UT game, have a good meal and get ice cold beer on tap?

I love the Tavern but I'm looking for new places. I like Red's Porch but hopefully I can find some new ideas.

        Food at Cover 3 is decent. Others like it better than I do. I'll always love the Crown & Anchor. Good cheeseburger, good beer selection, Live Oak on special on Saturdays.

          that place is a madhouse on game days, though. But maybe that's your thing.

            I meant Crown and Anchor, though i might have to take the madhouse comment back. I went before the Kansas game. It was crowded, but there was still seating available. And enjoyed nicely priced Live Oak Oktoberfest.
            One caveat. They don't carry the LHN, so they did not show this game. Might be more crowded on a day where they are showing the game.
            due to the fact that they didn't

            Well...I have Grande so I guess I might be staying home and cooking! Just thought I'd double check.
