In BVI's for the Super Bowl

Well it looks like we will be in the BVI's for the Super Bowl on Sunday Feb 7th. Where are some good spots to watch the game ( maybe even the Jets at time of writing!)?

I know Pirates Reastaurant on Norman has football. Willy-T's have a TV? We will most likely be in JVD that Saturday night so maybe Cane Garden Bay?

Every place you go into will have that game on. Particularly at that time of year, the BVI is over-run by Americans and every place will either have the game on or install another TV specifically for it for no other reason than to avoid watching all those American dollars travel across the road.

I don't want to insult your priorities, but IMHO unless you are not going with a beautiful woman -then go ahead and find a bar and waste your sail time. Realy on a sailboat in the islands with a beautiful woman get a radio, you only have a few days left. Have a great trip I'll route for your team hear in the cold NE.

The Bath and Turtle in the Virgin Gorda Yacht Harbour will certainly have it, or the projection screen at Mulligan's at Nanny Cay.

In BVI's for Super Bowl

I am liking the projection screen idea's on Virgin Gorda - it shows commitment for the night from the bar. BEYC and VGYC the types for some cuzzie, t-shirt and a big blow-up miller light chair give aways. I would look cool towing a blow-up chair behind me into Road Town! I'm thinking probably not

I have never been to Corsairs on JVD but it sounds lie a place where football fans would congregate; high -fives, shouting and betting.

In BVI's for Super Bowl

Hey Ryans! We'll be in BVIs then too. Huge Jets fan hoping for win today, but will be watching no matter who's in the game. I was thinking maybe Soper's Hole for the Super Bowl on Sunday. Have you decided?

And as for Justified...would it offend your "priorities" to tell you I'm a 44 year old guy sailing with THREE beautiful woman who love football almost as much as I do? Yep...just me and the 3 girls...oh darn! I love sailing as much as any sailor....but I beleive in a well balanced life! Sailing, beautiful women AND footbal all at the same time. You should try it

the loose mongoose in Trellis Bay has a tv set up on the beach next to the bar. its casual and fun, we did it a few years ago and I am sure they will do it again. they have tvs in the bar, but watching a tv tied down on a pile of beer cases is unique.
of all the places we visited last week, Loose Mongoose was the most pleasant.

BVI for SuperBowl

Thanks Paul (Brigadoon) for Da Loose Mongoose suggestion. If I am over in that area I was thing about checking out - good to hear they have TV's so I can keep tans on my bets, which could be involved since the Jets are not involved - could not bet against them.

Sailor4698 - I have not been to Sopers in about 13 years and I think we only landed in Pussers for lunch - maybe worth slippin' in there for a night to explore on that Sunday. We (wife and I) will be causing trouble on JVD's beach bars with a night in Great Harbour and will decide our next days ambition based on the amount of "fun" we have that night. If I see a 44 year old with 3 beautiful women, I'll ask where ther head'in for the game.

The Jolly Rodger at Sopers is having 7 screens, Bud Bowl Raffles for prizes and T-Shirts, BBQ and Dinner and Football Pools as per Lou of the Jolly.

Thinking that is my spot. JVD that Saturday - I short sail to west end and another great day in paradise.
