Looking for good (sports) bar

September 9th, 2011

Usually I watch UH football road games that I don’t go to at home or a friend’s house. This time, for Saturday’s game against Washington, I’ve decided to go to a sports bar and write a column about the experience. Since this will be a morning game, my requirements are good coffee, a bloody mary, tasty breakfast/brunch food and, of course, fun fans … preferably some of both teams.

Any suggestions?

    Kanpai does breakfast buffets for games sometimes. you might wanna check to see if they are doing one for tomorrow. Giovanni Pastrami in Waikiki is a good one, too, for morning games.

  2. dreardon:

    Thanks Aaron. I’ve never been to Giovanni Pastrami but have heard good things.

  3. Mac Nugget:

    Too bad “Players” on Alakea no longer exist. That use to be the place to watch games.

    Sports Animal Gary Dickman would always talk about Henry Louis in Mapunapuna for NFL mornings with their breakfast buffet and whatnot. I don’t see why they won’t do UH PPV games. Haven’t been there myself for games but hey, Mr. Dickman looks like he knows his way around food and football.

    Dave . . . you gotta try The Shack or Zanzabar in Waikiki. Forget the food. Watch the game, have a few drinks, and maybe even get into a brawl on your way out. Wait, I’m not sure if Zanzabar is open that early. Maybe you can go to the Shack, then have your after party at Zanzabar. Either way, I ‘m sure there will be a good chance of getting into a brawl at some point. Maybe you’ll even see some UH athletes there that can back you up. Oh, nope. UH football team will be away. That’s okay. Some of the women’s volleyballers look pretty tough.

    Okay . . . that’s enough sarcasm.

    Heard good things about Giovanni’s too. Never been though.

    Try Side Street Inn, there’s one close to Ala Moana Shopping Center on Hopaka Street and one on Kapahulu Ave. at the Prudential Building. Not sure how things are on Saturday mornings but great for Sunday football.

    you definitely should hit up manoa gardens (bale) on campus at UH. It will be open to the public for FREE.
    it is a UH game, so why not get a feel for the student atmosphere!
    they have coffee, a bar, and bale has some great food!

    If your on the mainland in San Francisco check out Players Arcade & Sports Grill, it’s the best! It has 2 bars, one of them is a Tiki Bar with a great view of Alcatraz, 200 sports channels and a full arcade with games and prizes. The food is ono! Players is located at Pier 39 in Fisherman’s Wharf.

    do think Kelly believes she’s playing an outright fictitious version of herself, the way Jerry Seinfeld did or Larry David doesHmm this is fascinating. Do you mean that Kelly believes that about herself, or about Alex (e.g. when Kelly accuses Alex of “acting”)? To be honest, I can’t tell whether Kelly even believes that she, Kelly, is being real I would guess that she either sees herself as one extreme or the other: either she believes her TV persona as a George-Costanza-type of act, or else sees herself as the Only Genuine Person on the show. Maybe she cycles through both of these stances within a given episode! She is maybe the only HW whose perspective I can’t understand/adopt, no matter how hard I try to put myself in her shoes or imagine her motives. She is just idiotic and bizarre.
