    This may not be the right forum for it, but it experiences a high amounf of traffic so:

    Does anyone know of any bars local to central MA, or around Providence that wouldn't have problems with hosting fantasy football drafts? We would be buying drinks so business wouldn't be a problem; any suggestions of a place where the concept isn't foriegn, or better yet, welcome?

    I run FF leagues and I go to establishments to scope them out. If I like a place then I ask for the manager and let them know what our intentions are and set up the date of the draft.

    I did a couple of drafts in Jillian's in Manchester, NH and the manager was a FF player, too. We even got free appetizers out the deal. Also, patrons and the waitresses were peaked by curiosity as to what we were doing.

    Great time and environment!

    I don't think any sports-friendly bar would have a problem with it. Might want to let them know a large party is coming, but it's great business for them.

    I bet you could even pay a couple of Hooters waitress' to go up to the board and announce picks.

    Just have everyone throw in like $20 each. ;)

    Doc's in Milford is pretty good. They have a glassed in room in the back that you can reserve. We have had our draft there the last couple of years.

    Unfortunately, we are targeting Aug 20 this year, and the room is already booked for that date (they have Texas Hold Em on Thursdays).

    Anyone know another good spot for drafts in MA between Hopkinton and Franklin along 495?
