Three more months till Monday Night Football.
Meantime, there are a few sports bars in town keeping the competitive spirit alive with epic drinking games that might just make you forget there are four more days till Friday.
Beer Olympics At Mr. Moe’s
This rustic, wood-lined cabin space hosts 32 flatscreens to peruse over a Moose Juice (beer, orange juice, Triple Sec, vodka, Schnapps) alongside the 95-foot long bar. Tame the mechanical bull on Wednesdays, or battle in poker and beer pong tournaments on Mondays, when $5 Jager bombs and $4 34-oz. Miller drafts fuel the competition.
Mondays 10p. Mr. Moe’s Restaurant, 3131 Commodore Plaza, Coconut Grove (305-442-1114)
Barracuda’s Dart Tournament
Inside what looks to be an old fisherman's lodge, large flatscreens illuminate obscure sporting memorabilia and an even crazier happy hour special of 60-oz. Miller Lite pitchers for $2. In between flipping through the old jukebox of classic drinking songs and the 100-strong beer menu, don't forget to show off those throwing skills in the boozy dart tournament. After all, your TPS reports are done, aren't they?
Mondays 9:30p. Barracuda Raw Bar and Grill, 3035 Fuller St., Coconut Grove (305-448-1144)
Play-Ya Mondays at Bougainvillea’s
Sure, this laid-back bar is known for its live reggae, rock, and funk music without a cover charge. But the makeshift stage isn’t the only thing to check out. Head over to kick some serious a$% in old-school Nintendo games (think Top Gun, Mario Bros.) and vintage board games, with free cheese pizza and $3 Bud Lights.
Mondays 4p. Bougainvillea’s Old Florida Tavern, 7221 SW 58th Ave., South Miami (305-669-8577)
