    Watching the game in Ames...

    My buddy and I and our wives are meeting in Ames to watch the game Saturday. Where are the best places to watch the game in Ames?

    Priorities:

    1) Opens at 10 AM
    2) Can get a good seat, and big TVs
    3) Good atmosphere - maybe some college kids, lots of people cheering, having a good time, etc.

    Yep, a day of watching FB at Welch Ave can't be beat. Plenty of TVs, beer and Pizza Pit. And all of a sudden, it's not smoky anymore.

    Check out Es Tas! Doesnt open at 10 more like 11 but should be rocking in there.


    NHL teams need to be added to the favorite teams section.

    Es Tas is dangerous to my health. Especially the liver.
