With the sports seasons in full swing and finals around the corner, nothing feels better than kicking back with a nice cool beer and watching the game with some friends. However, the looming question —the question you ask your girlfriend whenever you’re trying to find a place to eat— where should you go? Here are some of the places to watch sports in Elmhurst and some reasons why.
Fitz’s Spare Keys:
119 N York St.
This is the bar you want to go to if the game isn’t the only thing on your mind. Locals and college students alike can be found here and there is no shortage of things to do.
While they offer many different specials such as half-priced craft beer on Wednesdays and 50 cent wing nights on Thursdays, their viewing for games is modest.
One can sit at the bar or the high tables by the window to watch and hit the pool table during halftime. An oldie but goldie.
Pints: 112 S York Rd.
While this bar doesn’t offer as many things to do as Fitz’s, it’s more of a place where you can focus on two things and two things only: your date and your game.
You can’t really beat 17 HD TVs for viewing games, lots of brews on tap, and even more bottles available; it’s like sports heaven.
It looks like a typical line-like bar, but offers perfect viewing at almost every seat.
Elmhurst College Roost/Dorms
Sometimes, the best places to watch the game are the familiar ones. Every day, students can be found here watching the games and cheering along.
You can get the Roost food or just bring Chipotle or Buffalo Wild Wings to the couches for a chill time.
Beware though, someone with the courage might ask you to change the channel.
However, at least no one has to drag your potentially drunk butt home.
