Who's ready for some football? I am!
There are plenty of options for you to party with fellow Green Bay Packers fans and watch the game. Here are three that are at the top of my list:
I've written a few times about Ugly's (which seems to have dropped the "pub" which makes sense to me) for brunch and happy hours. If you haven't stopped in yet, tomorrow is a great time to do so. It'll have multiple 55-inch LED TVs with two large projectors, too, so you don't miss a play. If you have on the green and gold (or NFL apparel) you'll get $2 Miller products, $3 Fireballs and $5 Talls. You never know, you may even win a prize for being one of the best dressed fans.
2. Camp Bar (Shorewood)
Kick off the Packers season with a big outdoor party! Camp Bar is a great place to watch any game -- but it isn't a huge space -- so an outdoor party is the perfect solution. The party will get started at 4 p.m. Watch on the jumbo trons outside -- bring a chair and settle in -- or watch the game inside. BelAir Cantina will be on hand with a taco tent plus you can enjoy drink specials (and hopefully touchdown shots) all night long.
3. The Garage
The Garage is getting the season started with a Packers Pig Roast. It'll have 13 HD TVs for you -- two will be on the Parkhaus Patio. If you haven't been by to check out the rehab of The Garage, this is the perfect opportunity. You can enjoy a cheap but delicious pork plate with beans and slaw along with $3 Miller Lite and PBR Tall Boys. Or go big -- drink the Tune-Up Special for $5 (but don't blame me when you regret that 4 Roses Bourbon shot that next day).
If you aren't in the mood for one of these -- take a look at our Packers Bar Guide for other local ideas. Go Pack Go!
Carolynn Buser is one of Milwaukee's loudest and most adamant cheerleaders (don't dare try to disagree). She's the primary voice behind much of OnMilwaukee's social media and content direction, and apologizes in advance if she can be too sarcastic at times.
What else? She's a wine lover, closet trashy novel reader, beauty supplies addict and devourer of cheese (shocker for a Wisconsin born and bred girl, right?). She's also a bit of a foodie, which is a word most of you hate, we know. She works as hard as she plays - and that includes in the gym! So, you've probably seen her at one of the area's newest restaurant openings (and yes, she will share her opinions good or bad) or enjoying a cold one at a local pub.
All in all, Carolynn's a believer in positive thinking and will do her best to smack down your negative ones while writing about her city, her loves, quests and more.
