Wondering Where to Watch the Rose Bowl in Tualatin , Oregon?

Dec 28, 2009

Oregon DucksThis Friday, January 1 is the BIG GAME.  I am talking about the 2010 Rose Bowl in sunny Pasadena!   If you are like many, you were not able to secure your tickets in time.  If that is the case, where will you be going to root for (or against -depending on who you ask) the Mighty Oregon Ducks?!?!

Need a Local Suggestion?   The Hot Seat Sports Bar in downtown Tualatin is a local favorite.  Since opening in 1999, it has become the city’s premier adults only sports bar. Sports fans LOVE their 21 HDTVs (yes- 21) two big screens including a 100″ HD screen so you never miss a second of sports action.  Their menu features great selections for breakfast, lunch, happy hour, and dinner – and seven different varieties of hot wings.

They also have a solid beer selection- drafts, bottles or cocktails.  Be sure to call ahead on Friday to check for seating availability- or plan to get their early.
