Like you, all of us at Chin-MacQuoid-Fleming-Harris have been glued to NBC for the past week to see whatever bits of the Olympics we can catch. But, it’s been a lonely venture, usually done at home. This week many more of our local athletes will be vying for a position on the podium, and we’re planning on joining our community to celebrate. We’re going to connect with hundreds of other Parkites at local bars and restaurants to watch the Games on multiple screens and enjoy mob-cheers for our Team U.S.A. representatives. Although almost every eatery in town will have this on their overhead screens, we think we know the three best places to meet up.
St. Regis Deer Valley – J&G Grill
Could there be any better way to watch Pyeongchang than with a view of the Deer Valley ski runs? We don’t think so. From the ride up their funicular to the gourmet menu to the warm ambiance, St. Regis’s J&G Grill makes the experience of watching the Olympic Games as memorable as actually being in South Korea. Starting with a steaming bowl of Roasted Lobster & Fennel Bisque paired with a glass of Parallel Chardonnay, your taste buds will be as happy as your heart. As a renowned international hotel, at St. Regis people from all over the globe will be joining you to watch and applaud the world’s greatest athletes.
Collie’s Sports Bar and Grill
Nothing feels as “hometown” in Park City quite the way Historic Main Street does. It’s where we meet for just about every sort of event, this year’s Olympics included. And there’s no place on Main Street better for watching sports then Collie’s Sports Bar. With multiple overhead televisions, you’re guaranteed a great view from every table. The atmosphere is charged for victory and as friendly as it gets. Collie’s menu is casual, but not the usual “bar food.” With such delectables such as Roasted Beet Salad made with fire roasted beets, Peruvian peppers, goat cheese, and lemon zest, or their House Smoked Beef Brisket, dinner may be as memorable as watching our athletes make history.
On game night, there’s no place we’d rather be than Maxwell’s. This week that’s true for the Olympic Games too. Their bar is huge, which makes the shoulder-to-shoulder crowd take on the atmosphere of a live concert. Whoops and hollers turn into group competitions, the bartenders become a show all their own as the expertly sling cocktails and beers for the throng, and the best pizza in Park City is consumed pie after pie. TVs are all over the place, so there’s no chance the crowd will block your view. That overwhelming feeling of group joy fills the place, corner to corner.
These three eateries, as well as many others in Park City, will be showing the 2018 Olympic Games non-stop through the closing ceremonies on February 25th. We hope to find ourselves sitting next to you during at least one of the competitions that features a Park City local athlete. See you there!
