Our post a few days ago in search of a Fort Greene bar to watch the Super Tuesday returns inspired a reader to make some calls. Here’s his progress so far. We’ll keep you posted with any updates. And some of us will be in whatever bar plans to show the returns with the volume up. I guess we could always just wear headphones and listen to the radio (full disclosure: I work there)
So… mullanes is still up in the air… i need to ‘check with the bartender on tuesday’ to see whether that person will play the returns with the volume on. apparently i can’t do that until 7pm when they get to work. I will do so but… that’s obviously a bit late. I recommend stopping by to check… I have been promised that they’ll play returns on one of the tvs but that I can’t be guaranteed volume. So we’ll see.
RE: rope – i called them too. they were super helpful. they’re getting cable and were very very supportive about showing this sort of stuff w/volume on the big screen (though, i do hope that they’ll also require dog owners to keep dogs on leashes when they have events… who are those people? but i digress).
My other ideas for the future are:
1. Alibi they do show the news w/volume regularly… but the tv is small.
2. The new place Kif (where liquors was) they don’t seem to have a phone # yet but i did notice they were having a superbowl party and had a massive tv screen.
3. Red Bamboo which also has a huge tv screen.
Update: In case it wasn’t clear, Rope will not be airing election results for the primaries tonight. We’re still banking on Mullanes, who’ve at least said they will have the TVs tuned to the results (but no guarantees yet on sound). See you there?
