Bars to drink in Sunday evening where you won't have to watch the Jets

Not at all comprehensive... just a few bars without TVs... not that there's anything wrong with TV. Or the Jets. We love the Jets! Go Jeter!

Bar on A (we understand that the TV has been retired)
Burp Castle
• Coal Yard
The International Bar
KGB Bar
• Mars Bar
• Max Fish
Scratcher
Swift Hibernian Lounge

Also! If you're on the fence (kind of want to see some of the game, but not really), then consider the Grassroots... they have the lone TV leftover from 1991 at the south end of the bar... the Jets uniforms will likely look orange, though... the color on the GR set has been wonky the past five or so years...



Feel free to name other TV-free bars in the comments... (and Hookah bars don't count...)

And, of course, there are many fine (and unfine) bars where you can watch the Jets beat the Pirates.

You mean International Bar right?

EV Grieve said...

Yes! I should add bar to help with any confusion...

The Russian Vodka Room not only has no TV's, there's no windows either, so it always feels like midnight in there.

Max Fish has two TV's.
You should adapt this to "TV's that never play Jets games".

Ah, good point on Max FIsh...

I also wasn't sure on Common Ground, Bua and B-Side...

Remembered another one; I don't think Drop Off Service has any TVs.

They should be renamed the Bridge&Tunnel Jets because as far as I can tell that is exactly who they represent.

EV Grieve said...

I thought that too, Morgan, but apparently they have a drop-down screen or something that they can use for BIG sporting events. Or so someone there told me.

What's up with Bua because I thought that it was managed by Magnum but now it says DeVitto?

The building seems to have a lot of old timers so I'm confused as to why there is no fight against Bua because they are the worse.

I thought it was a Magnum set up to destroy the building? Does anyone live there or know the story of this beautiful building??
