bar/restaurant to watch the Tour de France

Does anyone know of some bars where bicylists hang out. I'm looking for a good spot to watch the Tour de France. I tried Cafe Hollander. Slow servce, mediocre food, good beer, and for a bicylce themed restaurant, I was frustrated that they didn't have the TV's sound on for the Tour and coudln't get closed captioning. I've also considered Benos in West Allis. Any other suggestions?

Possibly the Nomad, though it's under the same owner, I believe.

I don't think Chez Jacques has tv's, but maybe you can get him to show it.

Try Transfer Pizzeria. They are EXTREMELY bike friendly. If you contact them, I'd bet they'd put on a promotion for the Tour.

Also try The Swinging Door downtown. I know a lot of bike messengers hang out there.

Cafe Hollander was going to be my suggestion, since there are always bikers congregating around the ped bridge in 'Tosa and hanging at that restaurant.

I'd try Trocadero on Water St, though they are also owned by the same people as Cafe Hollander. They have a flyer on their website, though, advertising the Tour, so it might be okay to watch there.
