Local Sports Bars Ready For Cotton Bowl

With the Cotton Bowl being on a Friday and not on a holiday this year, some sports bar owners are not sure what kind of crowds to expect. But no matter what, their doors are open in the hopes of providing a place for Tech fans to see a "W".

Although most wish they could be sitting in the stands to watch the Cotton Bowl, a high energy sports bar is not a bad substitute. "We're real excited for the game tomorrow (Friday). It's going to be Texas Tech, they've had a great season and I know a lot of people are pumped up about the game," said Beef O' Brady's Owner Chris Anderson.   

Beef O' Brady's on 4th Street is a non-smoking, family sports bar, and Raider fans of all ages can come and cheer on Tech. "We're excited we got a lot of great specials going on, a lot of great specials for the family and prizes for kids at the door and stuff like that," said Anderson.   

Jakes Sports Café at 50th & Slide is going to be fully staffed for the bowl game. "We will have a lot of girls on the floor, so we are going to be here ready to work and take care of our customers," said Jakes waitress Brittany Johnson. 

Buffalo Wild Wings on 19th Street has the best of both worlds. "We have good family atmosphere in the dining area and then we also have the bar for people who smoke or like to have some adult beverages," said Buffalo Wild Wings Service Manager Jarred Swonger. 

And everyone says specials haven't been forgotten during the big game. "We have our $10 domestic buckets, so it's $2 a beer, so it's a pretty good deal," said Johnson.

"We'll have some red Raider shots going on for the adults," said Swonger.

"We'll have some different specials throughout the game, some wing specials, and food specials and just to pump up people during the game we will be giving away prizes and stuff like that," said Anderson.

Jakes and Buffalo Wild Wings are both on a first come, first served basis. They suggest if you want to watch the game, to get their 30 minutes to an hour before to get a good seat.  Beef O' Brady's does accept reservations, if you would like to go there.
