    Where to watch a telecast of my NFL Team in beautiful Aruba?

    Okay, I know you guys are polite, but as a PATRIOT'S football fan, I can expect some rather edgy replies to my post. Hey, some verbal jousting in the sports arena seems fair. Honestly, as a long time Patriot's fan I expect many of you Aruba lovers to have a different perspective on my favorite team. Well, wither you love the Patriots or route against them, you know they are the best NFL has to offer! Oh, well, I expect some comments, but it is easy for me truthful because my team is NUMBER ONE!
    So, enough baiting... (smile)
    While I am Aruba this month, the Patriots will be playing on Thursday, October 29, and Sunday, November 8. I really want to enjoy watching the game.
    Where should I go to watch the games? It would be great to be in a Patriots' friendly place, but I just want to cheer on my team in an environment full of enthusiastic football fans, even if the majority of the folks are not routing for my team.
    My wife is not a football fan, but it would be nice to have her share the games with me. Unfortunately, she has limited mobility. She can walk a short distance with a walker. She cannot lift her legs up stairs.
    We will have a car and a scooter so she can get places. Help us figure out where to go.
    We welcome to all suggestions. If you know of a great place for me to go without her that I would like, please say so. My wife, Barbara, doesn't mind not going. A marriage of 48 years make us very comfortable in doing our on thing. What a great joy it is to her by my side watching a game that means absolutely nothing to her. She sees me making a fool of myself doing wild cheering, yelling, hand slapping and body moves unbecoming of a “Senior Citizen”. Oh yeah, she makes some comments, but since she has no clue about football, she allows me some transgressions.
    So why didn't I just ask for a place to watch a football game? Well, I wanted you to know a little more about me.
    Thanks all for your help! ( If you reply, let me know your NFL fan base.)

    As a fellow Pats fan, I understand the need to watch. I usually watch the Super Bowl in Aruba in my timeshare room. That would probably be the best solution for your wife. Most of the games are on CBS and that's a standard offering in Aruba.

    If you're actually looking for a place to go to, such as a sports bar, I can't really help you. Good luck.

    There was a video on the Playa Linda facebook group page today that showed a group of excited Pats fans at Carlitos bar on the beach. I'm guessing the crowd varies by week but may be worth checking out.
    It is along the pathway near Playa Linda all concrete but I think there are 2-3 steps up into the bar area.
    Not sure when, but we will be back

    We're Pats fans as well. I even had a t-shirt made for my husband that says You Hate Us Cause You Ain't Us! Go Pats!

    That said, I'm trying to think of Sports Bars or Pubs with TVs. We usually watch it on the big screen in the lobby of our resort. I think Hollywood Smoke House has a TV at their bar. Maybe Busters or Champions. I've seen these places mentioned on the forum.

    When you are watching that November 8th game, think of me as a distraught Redskins fan on my birthday watching Gronk dismantle our defense.
    Not sure when, but we will be back

    Upon further reflection, your room TV may not be a good choice as the local CBS station is never in Boston so they would be showing their home team's game.

    In Aruba every place is Patriots friendly partially because 50 percent of the people you meet will be from the New England area and partially because people are just nicer while on island. I watched the season opener at Moombas (not a Pats fan btw lol). Moomba probably wouldn't be my ideal venue but the people I was with made up for any shortcomings. There is a place called the Local Store that has a couple of huge televisions and also has great food. Many will recommend Champion's and Buster's, I've never been to either but hear good things. There is a place I think near Tomato Charlie's that's located in an upstairs location that I'm told has a good atmosphere but horrendous food. I'd avoid that place... I need food!

    Pats fan here too!!! We were in Aruba last month - watched a Pats game at Busters on Sunday - great local bar. Also, watched a game at Double Down Casino Bar and Grill, which is next to the Tropicana. Every booth has its own tv. Nice big bar with flat screen tvs all along the walls. Easy access for your wife. Casino also on premises for half time fun!!!!
