Best place in Minneapolis to watch 2014 Winter Olympics

See also

The 2014 Winter Olympics’ Opening Ceremony is going to be watched by the world tonight. Sochi is in the limelight. Can you forgive them for the stray dog incident? How about the unfinished hotels? Can you forgive them for that?

If you feel no remorse toward the past week of events, then go out and celebrate America by watching the 2014 Opening Ceremony at The Nomad Bar, located off Cedar Avenue in Minneapolis.

The Nomad Bar, known for their prix fixe, meaning fair price in French, has a variety of world renown beverages and meals to compliment their gypsy-like name. Diners can indulge in several winter themed drinks to watch the chilly Opening Ceremony, including the Hot Cocoa Ole, Patron Café XO topped with Swiss Miss, and a classic Hot Toddy.

Make sure to look for the 19 Minnesotans representing Team USA throughout the entire Winter Olympics.
