Ok... I'm getting really excited about this season now. I was wondering if anyone had any pre-game rituals. Is there a particular restaurant that you enjoy going to, a bar. Do you park in Covington or Newport and use the excellent transportation that is set up for the games.
My top 3 options for going to the reds game.
3. Mainstrauss Covington, Ky -There are plenty of bars that serve good food, reasonable beer prices and a taxi is between $6 and $10. There is plenty of Free Parking but you might need to park in a pay lot this october (when we make the playoffs.) But even that isn't more than $5. My favorite bar is The Village Pub . You walk in and you are greeted by a huge sign that reads "REDS COUNTRY". The village pub is exactly what they claim to be, a pub, they offer beer and liquor. No food. The service is great, they are polite and they will talk your ear off about the game, because more than likely they went to.
2. Hooters Newport, Ky- Not much variety, but what you see is what you get. I don't recommend taking your dates there, but with your buddies, why not. Parking is about $5. But what sets this above Mainstrauss is the shuttle on the boat. round trip for $5. They sell beer on the boat and on a hot summer night nothing beats the boat ride.
1. Keystone Covington, Ky- This is my favorite because you have a great dinner, good beer prices, they have specials every night :all_cohol and you walk the suspension bridge to the game. Parking is free unless you get there late, then its $5. But there is nothing better than taking in the view as you walk across the bridge, bobbing and weaving through the crowd.
These are just a few options I have done. What about you?
