We’ve both been known to enjoy an NFL Giants game now and then.  But, in Giants/Jets/Eagles country, it’s tough out there for a Bears fan (me) and a Buccaneers fan (Ed). So, we were inspired by an old New York Magazine article about bars where your out-of-town jersey won’t get you beaten up. We still haven’t found a Bears bar OR a Buccaneers bar.  Anyone got any other out-of-towner fan meetups out there??

Please note, that all of these haven’t been verified so maybe call ahead first to make sure this information is still accurate.  Most of the information came from the internet and we all know how reliable that can be.

Here’s what we’ve found so far:

San Francisco 49ers:

Miami Mike’s Sports Zone – East Hanover, 130 State Route 10

381 Main – Little Falls, 381 Main Street

Jack’s Goal Line Stand – Long Branch, 149 Brighton Ave
