slides: Getting Out: Best Places to Watch the Patriots This Weekend
Thursday, September 05, 2013
America's favorite sport is back, and with it New England's beloved Patriots. Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and company will be taking on the Buffalo Bills this Sunday at 1 pm to open the 2013 NFL Season.
If you don't want to be stuck at home and rather catch the game with some buddies, there are plenty of opportunities in the Worcester area to do so.
Many bars and restaurants will be showing this and other games this Sunday and every Sunday for the next 17 weekends. Here are just a few.
64 Water Street
The name kind of says it all, doesn't it?
Perfect Game is the ideal sports bar with a ton of open space, a traditional wood bar, sports memorabilia everywhere, and 14 different HD TVs and a 110'' LCD projector. The TVs surround the place, so there isn't a bad seat in the house.
Also stay after the game for Open Mic Night with Bill McCarthy.
The Luxury Box
899 Central Street
It’s hard to imagine a more ideal place to watch a sporting event (short of actually being at the game of course) than at the popular Luxury Box in Leominster.
In addition to the spacious main dining room, complete with a number of HD televisions and a large granite and mahogany bar, what makes this venue particularly unique and ideal for this weekend is its four semi-private "boxes" large enough for 6 to 40 people. Each of these rooms contains its own 42" plasma screen TV, couches and dining tables. Call ahead to reserve one of these rooms and have a party while you watch the game!
Three G's Sports Bar
152 Millbury Street
All games can be watched in the Three G’s music room on an eight foot TV projection screen with surround sound or at the bar on four 46” LG TVs.
Also check out the various food and drink specials that will surely be available, plus video games, pool tables and dart boards if you want to relax at the half.
266 Park Avenue
The Loft provides terrific entertainment through a pleasing combination of drinks, food, music, and sports.
Nine Fifty-inch plasma screens make this the ideal place to relax and the watch the game. Keep up with the Loft's numerous events and promotions via their Facebook page.
315 Grove Street
Known as a great pool hall with tons of games like air hockey as well, Jillian's is also an excellent spot to catch a game. There is also a full-service kithcen and two full bars.
With plasma screens and large projectors, along with occasional live music, there will be something for everyone to do…even if you dragged them out to watch the game.
112 Green Street
The Banner Bar's Horseshoe bar headlines this friendly sports spot. With a bevy of different specials and traditional pub fare, there is something for every food taste.
And, with nine different plasma TVs, there is something for every football taste. Also check out the multitude of great sports memoribilia on the walls.
305 Shrewsbury Street
Funky Murphy's takes the idea of an Irish Pub and transforms it. Obviously great beer and food will bring you in, but with nine different 60-inch plasma screens, you'll want to stay for every game.
The two giant HD projectors always have the biggest games on, so you won't miss any of the plays everyone will be talking about Monday.
Legends Bar and Grill

A destination to meet with friends and have a good time. You can watch all the major Patriots games on our 10 TVs that are on every wall. Both the kitchen and the bar are open on Sundays.
