Football Season 2014: Catch the Big Game

Football season has finally kicked-off for the 2014 season! You don’t have to miss out on the action just because you’re on vacation. Football is a huge Wisconsin tradition, so it makes sense that Wisconsin Dells would have a great selection of sports bars. We’ve taken into account the food, the size of the TVs and the beer flow to come up with a list of some places in the area to watch your favorite team bring home the big win!

Spring Brook Sports Bar & Grill

Wings, burgers, and brews, oh my! Spring Brook Sports Bar & Grill’s menu caters to the sports fanatic’s taste buds and is the perfect compliment to any game. Don’t miss a second of the action at the Spring Brook Sports Bar & Grill; they have 26 TV screens to glue your eyes to! Sit at the bar, a high-top table, a booth in the dining room and still have front row seats to your favorite game.

Monk’s Bar & Grill

Burgers, beer and football go together like…well nothing else because it’s one of the best combinations out there! Monk’s Bar & Grill has some of the most satisfyingly delicious burgers in the area and a variety of TV screens, making it an ideal place to catch the big game. With two locations in the Dells area, we promise you will enjoy the atmosphere as much as the game. Monk’s at the Wilderness has 45 flat screen TVs for the ultimate sports fanatic! For a true Wisconsin experience, we recommend the Bucky Badger Burger with a side of cheese curds.

Wisconsin Brew Pub

Celebrate all things football and Wisconsin at Wisconsin Brew Pub at the Kalahari Resort. Test out the (Pabst Blue Ribbon) battered Everyday Wisconsin Fish Fry or the Tailgater Burger while cheering on your favorite team. Celebrate a big win with a Build Your Own S’mores dessert! You’ll love the casual, friendly tavern atmosphere of the Wisconsin Brew Pub.

Marley’s A Taste of the Caribbean

Feel as if you’re on a tropical vacation to the Caribbean, and catch the big game at the same time! Marley’s menu features delicious appetizers and entrées with a Jamaican flair. All of your favorite brews are available but why not switch it up and enjoy a fruity drink to complete the beachy theme. Dare we mention the 12′x12′ projection screen? It will practically feel as if you’re at the stadium!

Brat House Grill

Talk about front row seats! Watching the game on Brat House Grill’s giant, 14′ HD TV will put you right in the middle of the action! Game day specials make the Brat House Grill an even better place to watch football! Their menu is filled with Wisconsin favorites… like brats! A full bar complete with creative drinks, a wide variety of brews, and a friendly atmosphere, make “Wisconsin Dells’ Wurst Bar” an ideal place to catch the game.

Moosejaw Pizza & Dells Brewing Co.

Considering Moosejaw Pizza & Dells Brewing Co. brews their own beer in 10 different styles, it isn’t hard to guess why it’s the perfect place to watch football. Their extensive and delicious menu items can easily pair with your handcrafted Dells Brewing Co. brew. Out with friends? The upstairs bar has a fun atmosphere with a little more noise (perfect to pump you up!). TVs surround the circular bar so you have a great view of the game, no matter where you choose to sit. Have the kiddos for the day? No problem! The downstairs bar has multiple TV screens as well, along with a game room to keep the little ones occupied.

So get ready to cheer, drink and eat your way to a victory this season in Wisconsin Dells!

Celebrate Life Event 2014

Marley’s A Taste of the Caribbean – Celebrate Life 2014

Wisconsin Dells only American Cancer Society event

Talk about a feel-good event! Guests celebrated life this past Saturday at Marley’s A Taste of the Caribbean in Wisconsin Dells. The Celebrate Life event was held on September, 6th and raised money and awareness for the American Cancer Society (ACS).

The ACS event kicked off early for some. Guests moved and grooved to popular tunes with a zumba party from 9:30 am-11:30 am.

The main event was held from 3 pm-8 pm and was well worth the $20 admission donation. The bright colors of Marley’s created the perfect setting for a variety of family-friendly activities. Visitors were invited to take part in both live and silent auctions (with Todd Nelson, auctioneer) containing everything from a football signed by the Packers to durable patio furniture. The event also included a raffle with a chance to win the featured prize of $1000! The winners of this year’s raffle, Keith & Michelle Koehler, donated their prize back to the ACS cause!

Each year, a variety of donors contribute to making top-notch prize packages available to guests. Stories among those who attended were that of courage, triumph and loss due to the harsh battles with cancer. Visitors commented about the need for events like Celebrate Life; everyone’s lives seem to be touched by cancer in some way, shape or form.

Live music was provided for the evening by Brian Beebe and Friends (a welcome returning act to the Marley’s ACS stage). The band’s fun covers of current songs and original pieces were the perfect background for a night of storytelling.

The Celebrate Life event at Marley’s replaces the Wisconsin Dells Relay For Life (which ceased about 9 years ago). Celebrate Life has seen phenomenal support since its beginnings, and has been getting bigger and bigger with every passing year. Each year, the event raises over $50,000 to help fund research at the American Cancer Society, and this year was no exception.

We would like to extend a huge thank you to Marley’s A Taste of the Caribbean for hosting the Celebrate Life event and all attendees, in person and spirit, who are committed to the fight against cancer!
