Sports Bars If there s anyplace else in the country that boasts American pride better than Washington DC, we should move the Capitol to it. Unlike other cities where the televisions are dominated by hometown teams, Washington DC is the place to find general American sports pride on every screen, whether the playing team is from the area or not. Aside from the hardcore Steelers fans at The Pour House, no one ever seems to know whom they ll be watching duke it out on the gridiron or the court, and more importantly, no one seems to care. Just the act of watching sports is enough for most Washingtonians, especially when there s plenty of liquor involved. Sports bars are generally choose to be on the less classy end of the entertainment spectrum, opting for hi def televisions and massive projection screens in lieu of plush draperies and fine art. So, while no one can expect to be lazily stretched out on velvet couches for the game, they can anticipate having the television equivalent of front row seats.
