If you want to watch Oregon beat Ohio State in the National Championship game tonight, we have one piece of advice: Don't stay home. It'll be way more fun when you're part of the deafening cheers and the endless high-fives. Plus, you probably don't have fresh, cold beer on tap.
You don't need us to tell you where to watch it. Anyplace with a TV will have the game on, even nicer restaurants like Nonna. Though if you need some reminding of the sports bars around town, you can consult our handy map.
But if you're looking for more than a big-screen TV to lure you in, these places have definitely gotten into the team spirit with some sweet deals:
24th and Meatballs: In honor of the big game, Adam Berger's house of balls at The Ocean's restaurant mini-mall has declared every hour happy hour today. Get two sliders and a beer for $6.
Alameda Brewing: At this Fremont Avenue pub, the brewery's draft beers are just a buck (seriously!). At that price, you can afford to throw back a Klickitat Pale Ale, Yellow Wolf Imperial IPA or P-Town Pilsner with every touchdown.
Beer City Bottle Shop: All drafts will be served at happy hour prices at this new bottle shop on N. Mississippi in the former Pastaworks space. There's a small menu of panini to go with the eight brews on tap.
EaT: An Oyster Bar: Get ready for food specials, plus happy hour prices on beer for anybody in Oregon gear.
Hotlips Pizza: All draft beers are just $2.50 all night long at all Hotlips locations, but you'll want to head to the brand-new Hollywood location in the former Pal's Shanty space. Today is its first day in business and it boasts a bigger seating area than any of the others.
Three Degrees: The restaurant and bar at the Riverplace Hotel is offering the "Bucks chasing Ducks" drink special. For the "Ducks" part, you get a smaller version of the bar's Drop-Kick, a cocktail made with vodka, yuzu, triple sec, basil syrup and a splash of pineapple juice. The "Bucks" part is a beer chaser (because, they say, the Buckeyes will be behind all game long). And you can get free valet parking, courtesy of hotel general manager Ryan Kunzer. The only catch? The Ohio State alum requires you to say: "Go Buckeyes."
