Where can you combine this with THIS? With a little organization on your part - at the places listed below. As co-organizer of the New Jersey Devils meetup.com group, John assigned me with the task of listing great places to gather with other NJ Devils fans (or at the least places that will have the game on). From Mercer & Ocean County to the North is where you'll find Devils' Nation. So this list includes those counties, although I would like to hear from Devils' fans in South Jersey and then have you guys anoint a place down there. Some of the bars names have changed, so please check on that. Also some do not carry Versus; so if the Devils game is televised nationally, call ahead. If you have any updated news on a place or if you would like to add one, please post!
Editor's Note: Thanks to Steve for putting in the effort in compiling a list. The interest is there and he's filling a void. If you can make any recommendations or would like to add any input or opinion, then by all means, make them in the comments. Keep in mind, spamming is still not allowed - just make a recommendation, or an opinion, and leave it at that.
Of course, ILWT, SBN, or anyone else isn't necessarily endorsing these places; this is just an informative list of bars & establishments where one can go out and watch the Devils when they are on the road.
I have reviews next to the establishment when possible. I usually used Yelp. I cannot endorse the content in the reviews, but hopefully it will give you other peoples' opinions. If you notice the Devils PR are holding more "game watches" for away games all over the state. We hold ours separate and also combined with them at times. The feelings are that it builds community for reasons I mentioned in a recent fan post.
These are just recommendations; please schedule your own meetups through the meetup group, the Devils or via your email. Devils' PR also believes it translates into more seats sold for home games.
See you there - Steve Chernoski, Director, New Jersey: the Movie
PS - Despite the above first sentence link, I cannot verify that all of these establishments will have PBR; the above was just a mere attempt at humor. If you don't think it is humorous, please consider what I was going to put there before I settled on that PBR scene.
