Introducing: A Cool Event for UConn Basketball Fans on Sunday

Looking for a fun way to catch the big games on Sunday? We’ve got you covered!

Ian Bethune - The UConn Blog

On Sunday, there are two pretty big UConn basketball games. We enjoy being online with you guys for these games on Twitter, but whenever we’ve had a chance to meet in real life, it’s gone pretty well! So with that in mind, we’ve decided to create an opportunity for UConn fans to gather, chat about the latest goings, and eat and drink good things.

On December 2nd, we’ll be hosting an event centered around UConn basketball.


Where: The Press @ 187 Allyn St. in Hartford

When: Sunday, December 2nd, 3:30-6:30 PM

Why: UConn MBB is hosting Arizona at XL for a 1 p.m. tip. Come thru after the game and stick around to watch the women’s hoops team, who’ll be at Notre Dame for an NCAA Tournament Final Four re-match. NFL will be on, too.

The Press, which opened recently after taking over the space previously occupied by Black Bear Saloon, has generously offered to extend its Happy Hour specials to us during this time and have the Notre Dame game on TV.

We’ll also have a post-game breakdown of the men’s game and halftime commentary on the women’s team as well.

Event is free for any and all interested! Register to enter a raffle for one of many cool prizes!


This is the first of what we hope is many fun game watches. Expect special guests, games of skill, and prizes of all sorts at these events!

The UConn Blog, with support from SB Nation, is very excited to begin gathering our community together in person to enjoy healthy, informed discussion of UConn sports and cheer the Huskies on. There are tens of thousands of people who read this site on a regular basis. We look forward to meeting as many of you as possible.
