USA! USA! Every four years, the Summer Olympics give all of us a reason to cheer. Whether you’re into swimming, gymnastics, basketball, or (for the first time!) golf, there’s plenty of exciting action to catch. Here are a few Astoria spots to root for the red, white, and blue:

Katch Astoria


PS: These TVs won’t be showing Steve Harvey during the Olympics :)

Katch’s unparalleled number of TVs makes it a great spot to never miss a single game, match, or race. Throughout the two weeks of competition, they’ll be offering $4 Coors Light & Miller Lite as well as  $5 Heineken drafts.

Break Bar & Billiards


If the Olympics put you in the competitive spirit, how about playing a few games of your own? During the Games, both pool and shuffleboard will be FREE from 4pm-8pm Monday through Friday and from 12pm-6pm Saturday and Sunday. As a fun bonus, free shots will be given out with every gold medal for Team USA!

Oliver’s Astoria


In addition to showing as many events as possible, Oliver’s will be getting into the patriotic spirit by highlighting an American brewery: Portland, OR-based Widmer Brothers Brewing’s Hefe will be $5 throughout the duration of the Games.

Sweet Spot


Sweet Spot, off the Ditmars stop, seems to fly under the radar, which makes it a perfect location for a laid-back viewing experience. Tonight, they’ll be extending Happy Hour and broadcasting the Opening Ceremony.

The Local NYC


The Local is hosting a super-cool Olympics Kickoff party tonight, and it’s for a good cause! Starting at 7pm, they’ll be featuring $5 draft beers and wine (including specially-ordered Brazilian beer!), Olympic-themed shots, and a decorative map that allows guests to pin where they’re from and who they’re rooting for. Donations will be collected to support Zika research and continued treatment for children affected by the virus.
