River Pig Saloon: For your next match stay in Northwest and head to River Pig Saloon -- they’ll be showing every game on each and every one of the TVs they have scattered throughout the bar.

Cha!: Bottomless drinks from noon to 3pm at Cha! during boozy brunch? Does it even matter that they’ll be showing the games?
Kells Irish Restaurant & Pub: They recently installed new TVs in both of their locations in order to give you a better view of every match. Why don’t you reward them by having a pint?
