OK, so several DC area Saints fans have approached me to find out where to go watch the Saints. My current plan is to go to SR.com member Shibby's house to watch the games on his NFL Sunday Ticket. I would be perfectly happy doing that if it were just myself. The problem for most is that he lives even further away than I do from DC (and I'm pretty far out).

Does anyone know of a Saints specific Sports Bar in the DC area?

If not, does anyone want to make it a point this year to find one and MAKE one a Saints specific bar? I'm sure if we get a decent group up and work at it, we could find a way to stake our claim on a sport bar.

Please post anything you know here and if you want to get on the list PM me as well. Please make sure to do both so we get some momentum going.

(MODS: Can you leave this in the general area for a day or so before moving it to the Road Trips and Organization Board? Please? :) :) Thanks!)

PS We are also getting a group together to actually sit together at FedEx field for the Redskins/Saints game in December. PM me for more info on that too.

I live in Alexandria and have been looking for a good Saints bar for a couple of months. Last year I watched the games at Buffalo Billiards in Dupont but would love to find a place where a good group of fans get together every week. Buffalo shows all the games but there aren't too many Saints fans there. I think we should pick a place and make it the SR approved DC area Saints bar.

I live in Capitol Hill, about two blocks from Union Station, so I'll definitely give 18th Amendment and Green Turtle a look.

As far as us trying to establish an official DC-area Saints bar, it sounds like we've got people in Virginia, Maryland, and the District, which means no matter where we pick, some folks are gonna have to travel a long way.

Why did they kick you out? We were there as well and were quite noisy and didn't have any problems...
the skins fans HATED us. we were being quite obnoxious, but not enough to get thrown out... they were claiming that we threw beer at them... which was a complete lie. what happened was, when Reggie ran that punt back, in the middle of our excitment, some beer may have gotten spilled. Just a little bit, not much... but they called the cops and the cops immediatelly kicked us out. At least we were still ahead when we walked out...

I like Buffalo Billiards in Dupont Circle.

1. It is very large and there are always chairs/tables.
2. Each NFL game has a section of the place - rather than just one TV. This gives you multiple screens and (very important!) allows them to zone the audio. So you get to hear the game as well as see it, which isn't always the case for some sportsbars.
3. Food is good.
4. A good amount of young ladies in the house.

I'd hope that Saints fans everywhere have the good sense to not throw the precious brew that is beer.

I found a neighbor fellow Saints fan here in Leesburg, VA that has invited me over this Sunday to watch, so I won't be going in to DC.

Hey guys, I went to Summers in Arlington on Sunday (Courthouse area). Really good place and plenty of tables if you get there early. I ended up talking smack all game with a 9ers fan (living in the past) and could use some backup for next Sunday (and each one thereafter)... is this place convenient to anyone else :)?

I'll be back at Buffalo Billiards in Dupont. There's usually about 10 or more whodats and they have the game audio on.

The Green Turtle is a great place in D.C... really convenient to the metro (right there at the Verizon Center). I'm in Alexandria and have since migrated from Summers to Lucky's. It's probably the best I've been to so if anyone else is out there, I'll be there... though you may not notice me because I'm pretty low key when I watch games... don't pile on the Saints gear. Just watch pretty quietly and may cheer from time to time.

I know that the Louisiana State Society is trying to get people together at the 18th Amendment so there should definitely be some Saints fans there.

Saints Fan in NoVA--- Looking for fellow Who Dats

I live in DC, we watched all games at Town Hall in Glover Park last year. Pretty good Saints crowd, usually 10-15 of us last year... we had our same corner every game, big flat screen tv... will be there again this year, feel free to join. Will definitely be at the Fedex again this year. Went last year with a group of 20 people... and got kicked out by the cops in the 4th quarter...

Hey Guys,
I am glad that I finally found a Saints-Fan Forum here. Thanks to the Moderator for adding me in. Every week I watch the game here with Skinz Fans and I am the only one with the Saints (RB # 25) Jersey on. Even though nothing slows me down, but I always get into a hostile environment with mostly Giants / Steelers / Skins fans surrounding.. !!!. I would love to Yell Out Loud on a Saints TD.. I mean cmmon... you all know the feeling.. !!!...

I already bought my tickets for the Skins vs Saints Game on Dec 6th.. I am in SEC 216 Row 20... I'll be there with my Brother-in-Law who is a Skinz Fan... !!!.. Anyone else around there??.. Please hit me up.. I wanted to be on the Saints Sidelines :)... !!!.. Also.. someone please tell me about a place in NoVA where Saints Fans meet... !!!... I've heard from a few friends that there is a place called Lucky's in Alexandria... !!!.. Can someone please gimme more details.. I would truly appreciate it.. !!!

lets have a poll. Maybe one MD, VA, and DC location each.

DC lets make it metro accessible

Cyrstal City Sports Bar plays all the Saints games and usually has a good Saints base show up. Although you have to deal with every other team as well, but its always a good spot!
Technically, I'm not "LiveFromDC" anymore, but I remember this being one of the spots I'd go to If you're trying not to leave the city, one of the hotel's downtown had a pretty good sports bar that showed the Saints games, sorry the name escapes me.
