Local’s Favorite: Haywood Cafe

The Haywood Cafe has ALOT of TVS, some bigger than others yes, but they carry every single NFL matchup and some college games too! They have a great system setup with personal sound systems at every table, so no matter what TV your game is showing on, you will be able to hear what’s going on, play by play.

Best Happy Hour: Dos Locos
Dos Locos is a mexican restaurant that serves up a killer happy hour and also will have sports games on. They have a few TVs scattered throughout the bar area, as well as a projector screen that will typically be playing the ‘big’ games… GO Broncos! Their happy hour features great margaritas, $12 premium select pitchers and cheap wings and tacos, as well as an $8 menu for a full meal. Dos Locos is located on Highway 6 in Keystone’s Mountain View Plaza, about a quarter mile from the SummitCove Office.
River Run Village: 9280′ Taphouse

You’ll find a few TV’s here and they should have at least a couple of games on during your visit.
