    Pirate online streams I guess. My Directv Now doesn't work here in Sweden and neither does the online services for sites like WatchESPN

    I used WatchESPN on my phone for the FSU game last fall in Prague.

    All you need is a VPN like TunnelBear or ExpressVPN then as long as you have ESPN back home you should be able to use Watch ESPN. You may get lucky and find some bar that carries CFB games but I doubt it. You'll have better luck with NFL in bars there.

    Seems like more of a capitalism problem. Media companies only sell rights to media on a per country basis. If i try and login to WatchESPN Disney tries to sell me ESPN Nordic.

    I wonder what they show on ESPN Nordic. Ice fishing and curling I suppose.

    Heading to NOLA today for an annual guys trip. Really excited that a tropical storm will be coming soon. Luckily it might only impact our ability to hunt our friend with paintballs while he is dressed as a lion (lost Fantasy last year). @clemsontyger04 any guidance on the weather this weekend?

    I've met some friends through work that are Greek and live in Athens. They took me out to eat here one night and it was great. They would go here for meals even when a guest wasn't in town. https://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaur...009-Reviews-Cafe_Avissinia-Athens_Attica.html

    The coolest thing I did was go out to some old village with a couple of them and had a 6 hour dinner that involved eating old ewe. We just drank and drank and people would get up and dance while local Greek band was playing traditional music. Easily one of the coolest things I've done while traveling. I'm sure you could just do that and show up and I'll try and find out the name of the restaurant. If you don't like cigarette smoke it may not be for you because you can just rip cigarettes there. Greeks can make the French look like pussies when it comes to smoking cigs.

    I was in Athens for just about a week but you can do the touristy shit in two days really. I was there mostly to take in the "real" side of Athens but let me know if you have any questions and I'll try my best to help out.

    Try the French onion soup. Or, as they call it in Paris..."onion soup". Oddly, I had way better grub at my offices on the outskirts of Paris than I did in-town. Was actually pretty disappointing, so I have no recommendations for you. And don't order steak in France. French people don't know shit about steak.

    I haven't, but not surprising. Asia and Europe know nothing about raising beef cattle, besides some specialty stuff in Japan. North and South America own that industry.

    yeah some american butchers were complaining because the american steak industry has gotten away from the south american style, which is the best tasting apparently.

    we're going for real large, real fatty steaks whereas our south american counterparts have smaller, more lean cuts. apparently there's a growing movement amongst American butchers to get back to the SA style, but it's getting met with a ton of resistance from big manufacturers.

    Most everything in SA is grassfed, which I believe is the key difference. We don't have the resources and land to do the same in the US with current demand, but we're all pretty much accustomed to grain-fed beef anyway. I've had grassfed a few times, but didn't notice any stunning difference, honestly.

    At the rate SA is destroying rain forests, one could argue SA doesn't have the resources or land either. /hippiepost

    They actually destroy the forests so that they can have the farmland and resources for the cattle

    If it is nice out, go to Brit's Pub rooftop in Minneapolis about 230/3pm. Stunning and unexplainable display of talent (or at least there was this spring).

    I went a couple of years ago. Lots of good local beers. I really liked Surly Brewings beers but didnt visit the brewery.

    In the lowertown area there was a place called the Bulldog or something that had a bunch of local beers on tap and cheese curds. Went for after dinner drinks a couple times and liked it.

    I also went to a couple local dive bars with a local host. Alarys and Gopher Bar. Do not go to either under any circumstance.

    Minneapolis is close by and has better food and more of a big city vibe. Cant remember any places we went being great though.
