    I'm going to be in Venice on Sunday and was wondering if there was possibly a sports bar where I could watch the NFL playoffs. I've done this before in Germany, but I have no idea if anything similar exists in Italy?

    Try the International Herald Tribune for bars and pubs that might have it.

    Hold it a moment - you're going to be in *Venice*, the most beautiful city in the world, and you want to watch a football game instead?

    I'm talking like at around midnight or so I wouldn't mind stopping in to see the 2nd half of the Colts/Broncos game. Believe me, if it were any earlier in the day I wouldn't even consider it.

    Jeff - apologies, I'd forgotten the slight matter of time zones. :b [We're only an hour behind Italy in the UK].

    No, but if you lived in Green Bay and didn't know the Packers were in, you'd be hung. [​IMG]

    I'd be very surprised if there were any bars open on Sunday nights and even if so, if they'd be showing American Football.

    However, there are 24 internet cafes where I'm sure you could listen to the games over the net.

    In San Francisco Irish & English Pubs were open just about all night for this silly little event called the ......er World Cup. I hear it's popular in some places.

    I believe Harry's American Bar is in Venice, that would be a good place to check.
    (My wife insists I have a photographic memory of bars)

    Oh, there are so many jokes that can come out of that statement... "He remembers where the bars are but forgets where the house is..." "Then you're not drinking enough..." Etc.

    Seriously now, Jeff, if you do find a pub showing American football, I'd be curious to hear how many locals, if any are watching, or if you can even find it. Just out of morbid curiosity.

    And they're usually a good bet for sporting occasions anywhere in the world.
