Sports Bar in Golden Zone?

Besides the Gringo Lingo,is there anywhere left in the Golden Zone to watch NFL and NBA? We'll be staying at the Hotel Playa at the end of December.

Thanks a million for any information!

Isn't the Dugout still operating? Next door to the Saloon, across and down the street from the Dairy Queen.

Have you stayed at the Playa before? they just put a 55 inch plasma in the bar area on the wall and I asked spefically about being able to watch football on it in December this year and they said that's what it's there for, for guest's and whatever they would like to watch while enjoying a cold beer or whatever you like to drink!

Arturo's Bar at the Hotel Azteca is nearly across the street from the Hotel Playa and is popular for watching sports.

IN the past year, many of the restaurants and bars have started carrying the sports channels-won't be hard to find somewhere. They EVEN have curling for the Canadians hahahaha

How about hockey??? (NHL)...when in Maz in Jan/08 we found that hockey games where not easy to find. We caught a few games at the Sports Saloon but I understand that its closed now.

Any other suggestions for where we might find some NHL games?

We did enjoy some great NFL games at the Purple Onion that time tho.

Hockey...Twisted Mamas has Canadian satelite. This past winter Purple Onion, Heathers, Palapa del MAr and several others had hockey as well. Some of them only have the games that are being played in the US but they do have hockey! It is becoming a very popular spectator sport here in Mazatlan-but you might have to negotiate with the Basketball fans!

CrazyG is right...you can generally find an NHL game during the season. Sometimes you just have to ask them to switch to your channel, and the waiter may even hand you the remote control. The Purple Onion has 2 TV's hooked to Star Choice, for those Canucks in the north end.

Info from another forum.

It is reported that the Sports Saloon, across the street from th DQ, has now reopened.

The info is there are more big TV's, great food, and wifi.
