    Where to be on NYE???

    Have I missed something, or has nobody that is sticking around DM for NYE been talking about where they are watching the game and bringing in the new year?

    Can't say that I've heard of a good* place to go for the game, or ball-drop, or both.

    * = not having to sell a kidney to get in, not paying $5+/bottle of BL, being able to sit at some point during the night, being able to wear normal clothes and fit in, etc. (I may be asking too much.)

    Go to 3BAG...it's always packed full of fans and you'd be supporting a CF business.

    Ding ding ding.

    We are headed there for the game and then next door to Uncle Bucks for NYE itself.

    Chris, is 3Bag doing anything special for the game other than showing it (with audio I hope)?

    I know they'll have the audio. Not sure on if anything else special is going down.

    Sounds like 3bag and Court Ave are my only two choices...I find that hard to believe, but 3bag sounds like a winner.

    3Bag is home of the hawk club in Clocktower Square in WDM.

    In my opinion, 3Bag is about the worst place to watch, because they'll have tv's all over the place showing the game. Which, in and of itself, doesn't sound that bad. But, half will have the Mediacom feed, and half will have Directv. So, half the bar will be cheering or gasping, while the other half is watching the offense get up to the line. I hate places like that. Well, that, and all their hawk paraphernalia all around. If I were to go watch it in Des Moines, I would watch at Johnny's downtown. Much more Cyclone friendly in my experience...

    Re: Where to be on NYE???

    Not too long ago I was denied entry into Third Base because I was wearing a Cubs jersey. The 1st time I had ever gone there, I was supposed to meet some friends & co-workers there to watch a Cubs game, drink, etc. The door guy (and the 3 other bouncers behind him) said it was because it was "a sports logo/gang thing." I took the jersey off as I had my lucky Walking Cy t-shirt underneath. Still denied entry because of the logo/gang thing. I asked them if they knew that this place was supposed to be a sports bar and I was asked to leave. So I took my newly aquired street cred as well as my friends & co-workers and we went to the Chicken Coop.

    So I would definitely NOT recommend "3Bag" as a place to go due to their douchy staff & policies.
