Hut, hut, hike!
What’s orange and blue and won the Super Bowl last year? We all know the answer: the Denver Broncos. And now is the start of another Sunday watching, group cheering, game-day snack eating football season. Cheer our team on (or whoever you are rooting for) with a good drink in hand and lots of fellow fans at these local football-bar-like digs. This list of eight includes some of the best.
Blake Street Tavern
2301 Blake St.
This tavern is considered just as much of a Broncos bar as it is a CU Buffs fan bar. Each table is equipped with Soundog wireless speakers. And, if you get bored during commercials, feel free to play a game of Golden Tee or any of their other many other games.
