We have the SEC Network, Big Ten Network, ESPN, ABC, and CBS. We have eight 70" screens and show the biggest games throughout the day. The ACC Network is currently in limbo with ESPN, so we can't guarantee we will get every ACC game. We have the game/TV schedules posted in the bar every Saturday. Once a game is scheduled to play on a certain TV, we can't change it.

We are working with the city to get the patio open as soon as possible. When it opens it will be dog friendly.
