It's the NFL Network Replay of our preseason opener against the Texans! A great opportunity to see our team and check out Tompkins Square. Bar owners Billy & Jeff have given our Vikings Meet-Up Group an invitation to call 'T2' home. It's a friendly neighborhood bar, super-clean and the food is great. I'm told it is the inspiration of Moe's Tavern on the "Simpson's." They say Sunday mornings are never over-crowded. There are tables and booths, a big theater screen with large screens along the bar and front wall. Please come by Saturday evening and see for yourself. Come early if you'd like to have dinner. The game starts at 9pm. Plenty of free street parking all around the block, as well as along cross-street Manchester.

If you can't make it Saturday for our Vikings game but would love to see the bar, some of us will be there for the Thursday games (Aug 8). Bengals/Falcons will be live on ESPN and at 7pm is the Seahawks/Chargers game. Look for the purple hats and hang out with us!

*Our next Meet-Up will be Friday Aug 16 at 5pm in Santa Monica at Busby's West as the Vikings take on the Buffalo Bills. We will also check out Busby's East as the Buccaneers take on the Patriots live on FOX.

    Great to see y'all again! I liked Thompkins bar but it was definitely a trek! I'd love to meet somewhere a little more north; maybe Santa Monica, Mid city or Sherman Oaks...

    Really nice time. Very casual. Since we knew the stats of the game, we spent a lot of time just chatting.

      If you live in Woodland Hills why are we meeting up furthur and further West? I thought mid-wilshire was a perfect median for Westside, Hollywood side, Valley and beaches.

      Remember we began on Santa Monica Blvd and 26th. The last two seasons Mike invited us to the Varsity on Wilshire and Crescent Heights. We lost people because it was further for them. We gained people because it was closer. It's impossible to make everyone happy. This is just an invitation to Meet-Up and see Tompkins Square. Next week we will Meet-Up at Busby's (hopping West and East). We play the Bills and Busby's West is a Bill's bar. Keep in mind, 98% of the sports bars in L.A. have their teams. I'm sure everyone would like a place we can call a VIKINGS BAR. If anyone has suggestions, chime in! Tompkins Square has said "WE WANT YOU HERE." I'm simply hoping everyone will be impressed as I am.

    I LOVE this bar! It's right next to LMU and used to be called The Fireside before the current owners "classed up" the place. Great food and cool vibe. Excited to know this will be our new home to watch the games. SKOL!
