      For total number of TV's you can't go wrong with The Loon Cafe, Smalley's 87 Club, Hubert's (Target Center location) or Sneaky Pete's. All within 1 block of each other (First Avenue between 5th & 6th) if the scene get boring.

      Loon Cafe
      500 1st Ave N, Minneapolis, MN 55403

      Hubert's Sports Bar & Grill
      600 1st Ave N, Minneapolis, MN 55403

      Sneaky Pete's
      14 N 5th St, Minneapolis, MN 55403

        Kieran's Irish Pub has a huge screen that will be playing the game, and better bar food than the other obvious choices downtown. Especially the Ploughman's Platter, some excellent local charcuterie.
