Sports bars in Austin?

I just moved to Austin today. Where's a good, fun place to watch the Seahawks (and the rest) playoff games tomorrow?

Congrats on your new home. Maybe you'd like The Tavern (great burgers).

Also, let me preempt any suggestions for Ringers (disgusting burgers) and, instead, highly discourage your patronage.

Can't say I've explored all the options, but Ringers is pretty good. Extra points for the TV screens over the urinals.

Whoops. Nevermind.

Seconding the Tavern, and adding Fox & Hound. Welcome to Austin.

Welcome to Austin. The real entertainment begins when the Legislature convenes next Tuesday.

I would try The Posse East for great burgers and a less sports bar but decidedly sports watching feel.

Go Downtown Young Person: Walk along 6th Street and pop in one or more that suit you. Try a "dry" run Saturday night. Logan's is a solid fallback if you like loud/festive. On Trinity, Copper Tank has excellent micro-brews. Explore. Austin rocks.

Might try Cool River
Little Woodrow's might have a few screens too. Both locations are north off Parmer lane.

Unfortunately, Copper Tank closed around two years ago.

Not a sport fan.

A buddy likes to go to 219 West for games.
Good drinks, good food and kinda underrated in the Downtown area. Not a sportsbar, so I'd call and see if they are showing what you want.

This question would be better answered if we knew your age, social class, and government issued ID number.
