Five South Florida Bars Every Patriots Fan Should Visit
Gillete Stadium is a long way away. Like 1,400 miles away. Like a 22-hour-drive-by-car away. No one has the time or gas money for that. So it's easy to feel left out with all the magic happening over in Foxborough, Massachusetts (especially after their win against the Saints).

But it's all right. Because here in South Florida, there's a pocket of New England pride that can't think of any better way to spend its Sunday than with a lobster roll and the Pats game on. Its members are dressed in the same shade of blue and red and pronounce "coffee" the same way you do.

Very proudly owned by a Boston family since 1949, this joint roots for the Patriots and all the other Boston teams, from the Red Sox to the Bruins. They play every game on their 15 TVs located inside and out. They boast a dollar off draft beers during the game, and while you're at it, you can't leave without trying their fish and chips, lobster roll, and clam chowder.

They claim to play all the games, football and baseball, for all the teams, but the owner, Debbie, is from Boston. So they're actually a little biased. And while they keep the TVs on mute when all the other games are playing, for the Patriots game -- or really any Boston game, whether it be the Red Sox or the Celtics -- they turn it up, loud.
