The point is, your viewing environment is integral to your recollection of big games like Sunday’s matchup with the Seattle Seahawks. Win, and you’ll always cherish the place; lose, and you might never go back. Choose wisely. Here’s where you’ll want to be Sunday at 4:30 p.m.
Arlington Cinema ‘N’ Drafthouse: Here’s the scene at the Drafthouse for last week’s win over the Dallas Cowboys. I love this place:
Cause: The Ninth Street NW “philanthropub” has some ’Skins-specific specials for Sunday, including “RG3 Dollar” beers and cocktails like the Burgundy & Gold (a gin rickey) or, for Seattle fans, a $3 Dirty Shirley.
Lou’s City Bar: Not to be outdone on the RGIII-themed drinks front, fans can down “RG $3” shooters in between $13 pitchers of Miller Lite and $19 buckets of Coors Light.
Crystal City Sports Pub: You would be hard-pressed to find a local watering hole with more screens than the 100-plus this sports bar packs in across its three levels. There’s even a “Club Level” with three large projection screens and sports-book-style digital information boards with stats and scores.
Penn Social: $12 pitchers of Bud Light, $4 shots of Jameson and 50 cent chicken wings? Sounds like the most fearsome three-headed monster since Griffin III-Morris-Garcon. A 30-foot projection screen ain’t bad, either.
BarCode:Want some brunch with your football? The L Street NW lounge will show both the Ravens-Colts game at 1 p.m. and the Redskins-Seahawks later on with a $35 bottomless mimosa brunch buffet, a live DJ (not a great choice if you want to hear play-by-play) and hookah on the patio. Are you ready for some hookah?
Penn Quarter Sports Tavern: Seahawks fans like to hang out here to watch games. You have been warned.
