Pens Game Day: Bar Specials Around Town

With all the trouble and conflict of interest in drinking Samuel Adams in this Eastern Conference Finals match-up against the Boston Bruins, I thought it’d be a good idea to provide some possible options of places to watch the Pens game for tonight, Friday night’s game, and future game nights (Pens in 6, of course).

Samuel Adams BanSo here’s a quick list of some good places and where they’re located that have some great specials for game nights:

Primanti Bros– All Suburban Location Primanti Bros offer $1.00 drafts and $1.00 pizza slices for dine-in customers during all Penguin games. Plus there’s also the chance to get some free cheese fries through their twitter promotion, “Twitter Fries.” So if you haven’t already follow Primanti Bros and get your hands on some free fries.

Buckhead Saloon in Station Square is offering private Pens parties to watch the game on one of their four large projectors or multiple flat screen televisions. Reservations guarantee a free Miller Lite pitcher plus $2 20 oz. Miller Lite drafts (4 person minimum). You can register for a reservation here.

The Blind Pig Tavern- 2210 East Carson Street in the South Side is offering 16 oz. Labatt Blue during the games for only $2.50.

Carson City Saloon-1401 East Carson Street also in the South Side offers a rooftop deck along with “the best game time specials in the ‘Burgh.”

Smiling Moose- Another South Side bar offering drink specials for the game (surprised?), the Smiling Moose is starting a $2 Labatt Blue pint special along with special food offers when the puck drops on their 180″ projector screen. Reservations are also available.

James Street Gastropub and Speakeasy  on 422 Foreland St. is also offering a projector screen for live game action along with $2 Labatts.

Red Beard’s Bar and Grill- There are two locations for this place, the original at 201 Shiloh Street (Mt. Washington), and the new location Downtown on Sixth Street. They’re both offering pretty much the same special for the games which is $2 Off any Starter & $2 Miller Lite Bottles. However the Downtown location offers $3 Miller Lite drafts instead of $2 bottles.

Hough’s Taproom and Brewpub at 563 Greenfield Ave. will also offer a $3 20 oz. Labatt Blue offer with wing specials as well.

I’m sure there are tons of other specials that I missed so if you know of any others feel free to comment here or share on our twitter or facebook page. But for now if you’re thirsty (particularly for Miller Lite or Labatt Blue in the South Side)  and looking to head somewhere to watch the Pens game tonight give one of these places a shot. Hopefully there will be plenty of reasons to have a celebratory drink tonight unlike the first two games in this series. Let’s Go Pens!
