Anyone know of any bars/restaurants in particular immediately around Bradenton/Sarasota that have a pretty good, game type atmosphere for Lightning games? Obviously, I'm certain a number of places like BW3, Lee Roy Selmon's, etc. will have the game on, but what I'm more wondering is, a lot of northern teams in various sports (but esp. football) have fan groups that meet, and I'm sure the Bucs have a contingent around here as well. I was wondering if the Lightning did. Hockey fans tend to be quite hardcore, so I'm assuming so, but I'm just curious on places that have in the past been most enthusiastic, mainly during playoff games is what I'm referring to, because when we made our last run it was very disappointing as not many people this immediate area really seemed to even notice too much. I should say that anywhere within 25 minutes is an option for a night to drive out to watch with a crowd, so my parameters would be as far south as Downtown or the Clark Rd. exit, South Saint Petersburg (I can very nearly reach downtown in that time) west, or Riverview (with Brandon very nearly doable)... I just would prefer not to drive all the way up to downtown to get that atmosphere, at least not all the time (45 min. to arena). Please advise. Thanks!!

Monks Oyster Bar in Gulfgate is owned by hockey guys. Friendly atmosphere, good food and NHL package. Most if not all TVs tuned to various hockey games on hockey nights.
