No matter the time of year (or where in the world they may be), the biggest fans of sports have to catch the biggest of games, live and in the moment. And on the Grand Strand, when your favorite sporting contests are played – whether it’s football in the fall/winter, basketball or hockey in the winter/spring, baseball in the spring/summer, or any other sport or season – great places to catch the game abound.
For those who like to congregate with similarly sporting-minded enthusiasts, there are few better environments for catching the big game that at a sports bar – after all, not only do the fans watching at sports bars tend to be more passionate, but the big screens are bigger, the drinks are colder, and the menus offer a wider array of pub-grub options.
