RIVALRY, the newest addition to the Third Ward Restaurants lineup, will be the place to be to watch the Stanley Cup Finals in Downtown Milwaukee.  See our page (Sports Bars Milwaukee) to find out the full details about our sports viewing experience and how to “WIN” at Rivalry.  In short, when you arrive at RIVALRY for the game, you “Declare Your Allegiance” to your favorite team (we highly encourage you to wear your favorite team’s jersey) and when your favorite team wins that game you will receive 15% off your bill.  That’s 15% off a delicious deep dish pizza or a couple ice-cold spotted cow taps.  That just makes winning even better!

2017_stanley_cup_playoffs_logoThe Nashville Predators (affiliated with your very own Milwaukee Admirals) have advanced to their first ever Stanley Cup Finals with a convincing Western Conference Final series win (4 games to 2) over the Anaheim Ducks.  Despite being the underdog in the playoffs, the Nashville Predators swept the #1 seeded Chicago Blackhawks in the first round and have never looked back since. The Predators were led by Colton Sissions, a surprise hero of the game, and his hat trick of goals scored.  That is quite the feat in any game let alone the Western Conference Finals Game 6.

The Nashville Predators will take on the winner of the Eastern Conference Finals (Pittsburgh Penguins or Ottawa Senators) beginning on Monday, May 29th.  Below is the schedule of games for the Stanley Cup Finals:

GAME #1: Mon, May 29th

GAME #3: Sat, June 3rd

GAME #4: Mon, June 5th

*GAME #5: Thurs, June 8th

mexican-sombrero-transparent-clipart-6dw4io-clipartThis year we will have a BYOS event.  What does that mean?  Well, it is an acronym and it stands for: Bring Your Own Sombrero!  Why?  Because wearing a sombrero always makes things more fun.  So, at Rivalry, we will reward you for getting into the Holiday spirit and wearing your sombrero to the celebration this Friday, May 5, 2017 in the Third Ward Milwaukee.

Additional information and specials for those who do not want to be as festive:

If you are not wearing a sombrero to receive the above specials you still are able to participate in the following

HUGE 5′ Pinata – Yes, FIVE FOOT.  Yes, that is very large.  This pinata will not be your average pinata.  It will be filled with tons of cool stuff that may, or may not be suitable for children (depending on your parenting style) such as Lottery Tickets, little bottles of booze and other fun surprises.

The Milwaukee Bucks had their first winning season since the 2009-2010 season and have a great chance to knock off the Toronto Raptors to move on to the second round of the playoffs.  Remember the 2000-2001 season when they made it to the Eastern Conference Finals?  The energy was amazing for those playoff series and we see the same with this young, electric Milwaukee Bucks team.

RIVALRY Grand Opening Set for October 20th

RIVALRY Grand Opening Set for October 20th

RIVALRY Milwaukee is happy to announce that we are planning our Grand Opening for October 20th, 2016.  This just so happens to be the Thursday Night Football match up between one of the biggest rivalries in the National Football League – Green Bay Packers VS Chicago Bears.  What better way to kick off the opening of RIVALRY with the greatest rivalry game around.  This will be one game you will not want to miss at RIVALRY Milwaukee Sports Bar.

We have a lot planned for the Grand Opening as well as the rest of that weekend as well.  We are excited for everyone to experience this amazing new concept in Milwaukee.  We “went all out” when it came to designing the game day experience.  From the state-of-the-art sound system to the highest quality TVs every detail was carefully planned out.

The food line-up will consist of many items that will rivalry each other.  We wanted to pick some food items Milwaukee was known for and pair them up against food items that Chicago is known for.  One such rivalry would be the Chicago Deep Dish Pizza going head to head with a thin crust Pizza In Milwaukee.  Other great food offers will include: Saturday and Sunday Brunch Milwaukee and Milwaukee Burgers.

We would love for you to join us during our Grand Opening Week to see what all the hype is about.  You certainly will not leave disappointed and we hope to make this a regular stop for all residents and visitors. Creating a fun atmosphere that everyone can enjoy is something we really strive for not to mention we have some of the best views in the city from our Riverfront Patio.  We will be sure to specialize in sipping cocktails on the patio while taking in the amazing downtown river views.

See you on the 20th!
