Places to watch Army vs Duke around WP or Highland Falls

Post by armyftball » Tue Aug 28, 2018 10:05 pm

Are there any places that usually a crowd of fans show up to watch the Army Football games in the WP or Highland Falls area?

I assume the little bars in Highland Falls would attract a crowd? no?

Any ideas?

Do any exist?

Thanks!

I know last year that my friends and I contacted the bar in the Thayer hotel and organized a viewing party for the bowl game. I ultimately didn't make it, but I heard there was a decent crowd.

It doesn't take better players. It takes a better TEAM.

I called there and it didn’t sound very positive.

Maybe such places to watch Away games don’t exist...

We need a few more seasons of wins to build the fan base.

The Thayer hotel bar is a fine place to be after a Home game (The Patton Bar). Since the hotel was bought by some grads of the academy from the government some years ago, it is a fine place to stay with enlarged rooms and great ambiance. The only area that has not changed is the lobby, the reason is it was declared an historical place by the government and thereby can't be changed. The lobby looks the same as it always has since the building was erected in the mid twenties.

I'm sure at least a handful of casual fans will be on hand at the South Gate, the Park, or Benny Havens to watch the game.

We won't see the OU game because it's PPV unless of course you pony up $54.99 to watch OR the bar you attend ponies up the dough for its patrons.
