Making Your NBA Playoffs Game Plan

Everyone wants to be in on the action, but anyone that has ever stepped foot into a Buffalo Wild Wings on game day knows that sometimes you need to do a little planning beforehand. Here are a few tips to make your playoff watching experience a little better.


Why watch from behind a screen this year when you could be right in the middle of the action!


For those over 21, we suggest a few places for sports fans in Austin to go during the playoffs.

Mondays: Enjoy $4 margaritas at Trudy’s and $5 house martinis

Tuesdays: $1 beers at Cain & Abel’s

Wednesdays: The Local Pub & Patio and Tap 24 offer $1 beers

Thursdays: Doc’s Motorworks Bar & Grill has $2.75 beers and other happy hour food and drink deals

Fridays: $2 domestic beers from 3-7 pm at Chupacabra Cantina

Saturdays: Blind Pig Pub has $2.50 domestics from 4-8 pm

Sundays: Those over 21 can enjoy $1 mimosas at The Park at the Domain and all can indulge in the breakfast buffet while watching the game

For the foodies out there, go to your local Chili’s Monday-Thursday from 3-7pm & 9pm-close, Friday 3-7pm, or all day Sunday to receive great deals on appetizers, wings, and all your other game day cravings.


Finding the correct channel for a particular game is always difficult during this time of the year. Here are a few channels you should check out first.

  • TNT
  • ABC
  • ESPN
  • ESPN2

The finals will be exclusively aired on ABC, so make sure you have the correct cable plan before the big day comes.
