Sports Bars in Oakland
Don't try walking into a sports bar in Oakland donning red and gold—the Raider Nation isn't forgiving. It's all silver and black here. During away games, Oakland's sports bars turn into the Black Hole with hard-core fans adding to the rowdy atmosphere. Of course it's not all about football. Baseball fans come out to support the A's and to drink with fellow fans in the comfort of a bar: drinks in glasses rather than plastic cups, comfortable seating and instant replays from TVs throughout the bars are just a few of the luxuries. Basketball games are also becoming more popular since the Golden State Warriors' surprising 2006-2007 season. Of course, true Warriors fans have been drowning their sorrows and toasting to victory in places like George and Walt's through all the heartache and happiness. Oakland's sports bars provide excitement for those who want to get in the mix with true fans on game day.
