Who's your money on?
It's been a dream match-up for years. Floyd "Money" Mayweather and "The Notorious" Conor McGregor facing off in the same ring.
We're here to help if you want to watch the big Mayweather vs. McGregor matchup but not quite sure where to go. From the North Shore to the South Shore, here are some local options that are carrying the big brawl this weekend.
Happy's Irish Pub
This is a great spot for folks who want to tailgate before the Saints game and catch some of the fight. Its prime location near the Superdome ensures you won’t miss a play or punch. The cover is $20, which includes two beer tickets. Photo courtesy: Happy’s Irish Pub
Dave and Buster's
Dave and Buster’s is another great spot for folks who are looking to catch a little tailgating action along with some of the fight. The venue will broadcast the fight in one of the private event spaces with food and drinks, but it’s going to cost you. Guests can choose between “The Right Hook” package for $50 or “The Knockout” package for $60. Both include a large selection of food and two premium drink tickets. If the fight ends early, you can always fill your time by playing some games.
Play some games while watching the fight at this popular Warehouse District spot. The cover charge is $20 for standing room only. If you can find three friends to join you, it’ll cost you $100 for a four-top table. Find two more friends, and you can get a six-top for $150. The tables come with a minimum $50 food and drink purchase. Photo courtesy: Barcadia
While folks are at Lucy’s watching the Saints game, you can head next door to The District to catch the fight. Choose between a $30 cover per person or you can reserve a table for four. A table will run you between $200 to $300, but the option comes with a bottle of liquor. Photo courtesy: The District
