    Alright - instead of bumping last year's version.... what's the scoop? We have the first preseason game coming up this Saturday night (home v. Denver). I know I didn't get a chance (or remember) to look for alternate locations. Did anyone else find central spots?

    As for this Saturday - anyone in for watching this one at a location of choice? Perhaps Ker's for now till we find other solutions?

    this was the exact thread I was looking for. I just moved to Downtown Ft. Worth. I had season tix the last 5 yrs! But had to give them up AND move here. I don't know of any places here yet its only been 2 weeks. But without NFL ticket i will be in desperate need of a place to watch the games. I will keep up with this thread to see where the games will be watched.
    I guess I am no longer in the yellow:aggressive:

    Chris, sounds like my position last year - I had season tickets since day one and tailgated in blue. Then last year I moved up to DFW - NE side and it's just not the same as tailgating and a live game, but it is good to find a close second with some fellow fans.

    Once a few of the regular locals wake up (Hoth, A-Tx, p-neck, shoot - guerilla and rvguy - where the heck have y'all been?), we'll figure out a place. Last year I think we got burnt out on Ker's every week, but after an offseason - at least till we figure out alternatives, some wings and such doesn't sound too bad. We went to the Winghouse of Dallas since it was a central location.

    I'll still only make an occasional appearance. I mean, I made... hmm... oh, yeah, ONE appearance last year. :texflag:

    But it was Carolina and that was fun.

    I'll be going to the preseason game with the Cowgirls and I HAD to go to the first Monday Night Game EVAR in Reliant. :kingkong:

    And I will unfortunately be in Italy opening weekend. :gun:

    Other than that, it's just going to depend. We're probably going to be moving from Flower Mound to Ponder which puts me a little further out. I'll probably come out if I get a situation like the Carolina game where I dropped my wife off at the airport and then swung by the watch party. But I've got no real preference on where it happens.

    Ha. Yeah, it's like a Hooters - but it doesn't take away too much from the game.

    P-neck, we'll see ya when we see ya then.

    I guess all my fellow Texan bretheren in DFW have turned to the silver and blue to worship mummies and Jessica Simpson's bish.



    ... yeah, I'm calling y'all out.

    Dude, that's not cool.

    I'm not sure how available I'll be this fall. My youngest start flag football and my oldest will be playing tackle yet again. I'll probably be good for the Oct games, as I will be coming from work.

    IF we can somewhere other then Ker's I might become more available.

    Heh - I knew that'd get someone's attention.

    Hey, if any of y'all know of alternate sports bar central locations, I'm all open for that. (I'm still realtively new to the city.)

    Guess I better start googling.

    Buffalo Wild Wings opened the first of their newly redesigned locations in Irving recently (It's a 635 and MacArthur roughly).

    http://www.bizjournals.com/twincities/stories/2004/10/25/daily29.html

    Looks impressive from the outside.

    Hmm... I'm down for that for an alternative (though it's chicken again).

    Would y'all want to hit that this Saturday or start off with Ker's till we get the gameplan? It'd be real nice to have one or a couple of "home base".

    Alright you slackers. In addition to Ker's, here's some suggestions...

    Twin Peaks - Arlington
    Bone Daddy's - Dallas though I can't tell if they have the games there.
    Wizard's Sports cafe - Richardson - 2nd WIN Det home game, good size and pool tables
    Buffalo Wild Wings - Irving, Addison, Lewisville - Indy home game in Irving, good place.

    ... the search continues. Let me know if any (or all) of those meet your fancy. And where the heck is A-Tx?

    Found a few more alternatives listed in the '07 DFW watch party thread.

    Big Johnson's beer garden - Dallas
    Buffalo Joes - Dallas - Browns game - WIN, good "strip center" sports bar
    TNT Sports Page - Addison though this seems to be Viking fans homebase
    Frankie's Bar - uptown Dallas - 3rd WIN in a row! Cincinnati home game - better than MAT, packed with 'boy fans
    Varsity Club - Plano

    some more...
    Bailey's 1st & 10 - Highland Park
    Industry Bar - Richardson
    McKinney Ave Tavern - uptown Dallas - Pit game, good place, but you'd think more than one waitress for Sundays
    Ten Sports Grill - downtown dallas - Jag away game - good place, but all the smoking Saint fans go there
    Wild Turkey- Dallas

    Others suggested / found.....
    Cafe Gecko - Addison
    Ker's Wing House - Dallas Miami home game - 1st WIN (good juju)
    Texan Station - Grapevine
    Flips Grill - Grapevine - Titan away game, good food and service. 2nd visit - Min away
    Bobby V - Arlington
    No Frills - Arlington

    edit - we're gonna hit some 2nd go arounds, those will be highlighted. I'll start bolding the upcoming game for perhaps easier scanning. Revised the red spots to places that seemed to be most enjoyable if we want to rehit those.

    Added some more to the list above (perhaps to keep the list on the first page). Based off noting where people lived in the '07 thread and these locations, see if we can't come up with something central - perhaps permanent home base or rotating among a few...

    Edit, looks like those are N Dallas - ranging from Irving and Carollton on the West side to Richardson and Plano on the East side. Then from what I can gather.... Hoth and P-neck on the NW side, ChrisR and A-Tx on the West side, DallasTx up North, I'm in NE and TexansSB07 on the East side... so, yeah - we're all over.

    Yeesh.

    Last call - 2 hours before the game. Anyone wanna meet up? I'm in NE Dallas, so we don't need to do the "offical spot" as of yet - like there is one.

    Any early plans for this week's game? Another Sat night game - depending on response, either I'll check on one for the group or I'll head to one close by my area.

    I have no idea how I missed this thread last week, but I would not have been able to go as we had dinner plans with another couple. Probably OK for this Saturday, but it might be a MRS. AT tagalong night as she is out of town this week and will want to unwind.

    Let me look at the list and see what looks interesting.

    Sweet - glad to have y'all back around. Seems we have another in our midst, ChrisR from Ft.W - we gotta impress him... for a little bit anyway till he buys a few rounds.

    I'm a definite no go this week. Between football weight ins and my oldest's birthday I'm thinking my Sat. is already packed.
