2009 Monday Night Football beer and food specials throughout the Vail Valley
September 23, 2009 —
As a football fan, I know how important it is to know where the beer and food specials are for Monday night, so I’ve compiled a list of the 2009 season Monday Night Football bar and restaurant specials at all my favorite local sports bars below.
Just making this list made me extremely thirsty. Enjoy, enjoy responsibly, and we’ll see ya when the Broncos take the AFC championship this year. Who’s with me!?!
The Club The Club is known for it's live entertainment on a nightly basis, including the world-famous Steve Meyer, "The Good Times Man," apres-ski show. Meyer plays Wednesday through Saturday starting Nov. 27 going live at 5. Their stage become a giant 100-inch bigscreen projection TV for the game, an image not to be missed. Monday Night Football turns into Monday Night Madness at the Club each Monday, so don't miss it.
MNF specials: First MNF at the Club is Oct. 19 and runs through the season: $1 Bud and Bud Light drafts, $3 Jager shots, $5 Jager Bombs.
Location: 304 Bridge St.
Vail, CO 81657
Vendetta’s The pizza (and it’s slopeside location) is what makes the V-bar famous, but the addition of four brand-new high-definition TVs doesn’t hurt either. The pizza bar also offers some quality people-watching out its picture-frame window, and the back patio is cool and breezy in the fall.
MNF specials: On Monday (and other nights) Vendetta’s offers 50 percent off large pizza’s (dine-in only), $2.50 draughts of Bud, Bud Light, Coors Light, $4 draughts of Fat Tire, Stella Artois and Blue Moon. They also offer select pasta, seafood, and burger dishes for under $10.
Location: 291 Bridge Street, just a few yards down the street from the Vista Bahn
Perhaps the world’s nicest sports bar, this place has the weird ability to be cool and casual and yet still sport amazing hand-carved wood throughout. It’s in a nice location, too – right at the top of Bridge Street. The bartenders are all seasoned veterans, so service is prompt and a seat at the bar is a piece of prime golden real estate, especially with those 13 HD TVs.
MNF specials: $5 all-you-can-eat wings from 5-10 p.m., $2.50 Coors Lights, $7.50 patron margaritas, 5-6 p.m. Happy Hour Smithwicks Ale and Guinness $5 for 20 oz pints, house margarita $4.
Location: 333 Bridge Street, right at the top of the street, slopeside.
Sandbar Sports Grill
This is the biggest, baddest, and most heavily populated football joint in the valley. They’ve got umpteen million high-def TVs (OK I exagerate - it's 23 TVs all told), a big projector screen, and there isn’t a couch or bar stool that isn’t filled by game time. At Sandbar all the drinking and cheering is loud and spirited.
MNF specials: $5 cheese pizzas and $5.95 burgers your choice cheese and fries, $2.50 Coors and Coors Light draughts, Happy hour Mon-Friday from 4-7 p.m. $2.50 domestics, $2 tacos, $4 shot list, ˝ wells.
Location: West Vail mall, 2161 N Frontage Road
The Red Lion
At the heart of Bridge Street, this sing-a-long, live music bar has done much to improve its TV situation of late, so now they’ve got 19 TVs and a great atmosphere.
MNF specials: 20-ounce drafts Coors Light, Sam Adams, Heineken, Blue Moon, 1554, fat tire, $3, plus $3 wells.
Location: 304 Bridge Street
Paddy’s is in Eagle-Vail and draws some hard-core fans and families to its 22 televisions, partly because the kids can play in Paddy’s game room. It’s also a long, long-time local’s favorite bar, so if you’re looking for the touristy thing, this isn’t your place.
MNF specials: Half-price pizzas, $2.50 pints Bud, Bud Light, Coors, Coors Light, draft, $8.50 pitchers during the game. Mon-Fri happy hour from 3-6 p.m.: $5 hot wings, $6 apps, and $1 off all the drinks.
Location: 40801 Highway 6&24 in Eagle-Vail (across from the Vail Daily building).
Altitude Club and Café
Big screens, couches, pool tables, and a good view from anywhere in the bar makes this a favorite for locals as well as guest in the Evergreen Lodge, where the bar is located. It’s small, which makes it easier to get service, and it’s lively without being obnoxiously crowded on game day.
MNF specials:$9.50 burger and a beer, $10 for drumsticks and a beer, $10 peierogis and a beer.
Location: Inside the Evergreen Lodge in Vail, 250 S. Frontage Rd
A huge Irish bar in comparison to others in the Valley, there’s always something going on at Finnegan’s – in fact there’s usually two or three events at a time ongoing. Upstairs features an entire wall of televisions, as well as pool and video games, and downstairs features live music and karaoke.
MNF specials: Happy Hour Mon – Fri 4-7 p.m. includes ˝ price domenstic bottles and drafts, half price wells, half price wine, as well as $3 tacos and $5.50 wings.
Location: Beaver Creek Blvd, Avon. Take I-70 west from Vail to the Avon exit, go through three round-a-bouts and hang a left at the building that looks like a big boat. Look on the far side of that building for Finnegan’s.
