Not knowing what to expect I took a well deserved vaction to Sosua in the Dominican Republic for the Super Bowl.
I had thought with the Dominican’s playing in the winter leauge baseball championships that I might have to search the town to find the game, but I very wrong.
Super Bowl week has become the #1 vacation for thousands of New Yorkers and with the Giants in the big game it was the biggest crowds of people I have ever seen. Hotels were at 100 percent and the bars were jammed from early in the evening to early in the morning.
My well deserved relaxing week turned into a week long endurance contest. I met several New York cops along with the many Canadians, having no trouble finding someone to take that famous left turn at the corner with me.
The game itself was promoted throughout the week by seemingly by every bar and restaurant in town. I took my time as I tried to hit as many spots as possible. Tera Linda Had a great party, Sharks Bar was packed, Rumba’s was over flowing into the street.
I choose to watch most of the game at a new sports bar called Coachs Corner, which is located in the old Hideaway location. Tucked off the main street, Coach’s offered food and drink specials, several Flat screen TV’s and made a great place for the serious fan.
Of course it was nice to have lined up 4 deep on the streets just waiting for the game to end. It was the perfect place to watch the game with your friends while the barmaids at Coachs supplied enough eye candy for the serious fan. A guy named Ira was the host and he went out of his way to make everyone comfortable. I needed a night like last night thanks to Coachs I took a right last night instead of a left came home with money in my pocket and got a good night sleep first one in 10 days, maybe tonight I will just go to Coachs and watch some hockey tonight- and maybe NOT.
