    Chicago Bears Game Sept. 23, 2012

    Anyone have any good ideas for a bar where we might be able to watch the game while we are in Aruba? Ideally it would allow us to still be somewhat outdoors, such as a bar with tv's under a covered patio, and not feel too enclosed so we can still enjoy the nice weather!
    Thanks!

    sunday football is as popular in aruba as it is in the usa.
    might be because there are so many americans there

    I have watched several Jets games in Aruba...

    Hooters - best bet - they will have NFL Direct TV package.
    Champions - also should have NFL direct TV package
    Busters (now closed)
    There is a bowling alley / sports bar in the mall - never went there but it looked cool.

    Moomba used to get some games - not sure if they would have the bears game

    Hey, we just noticed a new sports bar opening. not sure when. it looked like it was moving right a long. it is right past Barney's on the right side across from Lekker if anyone knows where that is. if you take a taxi i'm sure it wouldn't cost much. also, Barney's might be getting the football games there too.

    P.S. The bears still suck!! ;-D

    Thanks Shnyda! The guys have been hoping for Hooters for obvious reasons-but do you know if they have tv's in an outside area (e.g. covered patio)?

    Luvsun-I have to agree! But, nothing like being able to tell our friends back home that we watched from Aruba!

    I think they have a couple TV's outside on the deck - but not 100% sure. And - as of 2 years ago - last time I was in Hooters - they had some very old school TV's (no HD). They may have upgraded since.

    My fave watching a football game in Aruba happened a couple years ago. It was an early January Jets-Bengals game that NY needed to win to get into the playoffs. Being a season ticket holder - I was depressed I was missing the game. Anyways - that day turned out to be the coldest of the winter. My friends were texting me from pics from the tailgate with huge mounds of snow while I was sending back pics of the beach I was sitting on. That eve - we went to Busters to watch the game. The Jets blew Cincy out of the water and I met a bunch of other Jets fans that appreciated that I was the only one in the bar with a Jets Jersey on. They proceeded to buy my wife and I drinks all night!
