Best Places to Watch Football in and Around Frisco, Colorado

Posted by: admin October 2nd, 2015

Fall is upon us. The Aspen leaves are changing in all their splendid glory and there’s a chill to the air. What does that mean? Yes, of course it means skiing soon, but what about that F word that we don’t mind hearing … football! Check out some favorite places in each of the Summit County towns around our Frisco bed and breakfast to cheer on your favorite team.

Ollies-Pub-and-GrubOllie’s Pub & Grub (Frisco)

With two locations in Frisco (just a few blocks from the Frisco Lodge) and Breckenridge, Ollie’s is a true sports bar with an “everybody knows your name” sort of atmosphere. Classic American bar fare and 16 HD TV’s throughout the bar and restaurant (with every major sports package) make this one of our favorite spots to visit for weekend football action.

Dillon Dam Brewery (Dillon)

Just a few minutes’ drive from our lodge, the Dillon Dam Brewery is another hot spot to get your football fix. “The Dam” has 11 TV’s, the Big 10 Network, SEC Network and NFL Sunday Ticket, not to mention four distinct food specials, including their Siracha Chicken Skewers and smoked trout dip. Add in a full slate of beers brewed on site, including a seasonal brew, and you might have found your spot for the weekend.

As and added bonus, Eric’s has 25 arcade games for you and your children’s halftime enjoyment.

Old Chicago Pizza & Taproom (Silverthorne)

This popular chain pizza joint in Silverthorne offers a pretty awesome NFL Sunday special. In addition to its 13 TV’s, Old Chicago offers a 2 for $8 or 3 for $11 menu for appetizers, and drink specials that see Coors Light ($3.25 pint, $4.00 tall) and Blue Moon ($3.75 pint, $4.50 tall) on sale.
