Watch football downtown near convention center

Hi There. We will be heading to Winston-Salem this weekend for the Craftsmen Fair at the Convention Center. After we want to stick around the downtown core - walking distance if possible - and catch some college football - and we're not local fans, so it's an out of town game (Nebraska/Michigan) we're looking for. I know about the Fox and the Hound a bit outside of downtown. Anything close to the Convention Center that could meet our desires?

Appreciate any help. Thanks!

Foothills Brewery or Recreation Billiards, both on 4th St. (one block over from the Convention Center). Rec Billiards is more a true bar--no food served--so if you want food then Foothills is probably the best bet for you.

Kings Crab Shack ended up being a good place - they have 6 tvs over their long bar. Thanks for the other recommendations, the Brewery seems like a nice place too.

So what did you think of Kings? They are relatively new and I've heard some bad reviews. I'm hoping it was just start-up issues and perhaps they've worked them out by now. Did you eat there, and if so, how was the food?

We didn't eat there, we went to Mooney's. Just love Lebanese food, and coupled with their good ratings, it was a must for us. But the place was pretty busy with a good atmosphere - and this was between 5-6 PM.

Yep, Mooney's is an excellent choice. Glad you enjoyed your visit!

I plan to try King's soon, so I'll post a review afterwards.
