Pull Up a Bar Stool at the World Series

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Chicago (October 26, 2009) — Going to the World Series? New York City and Philadelphia will be bustling in coming days as fans from all over the world flock to catch a bite of championship action.

Before, during and after each game, fans will congregate at sports bars and restaurants for play-by-play conversation. Travel experts at The GO Group, which provides ground transportation to and from 52 major airports, have researched the sports venues where Yankee and Philly fans will most likely congregate:

New York City

Located right across the river from Yankee Stadium, Coogan’s is the best location to catch the Bronx Bomber postseason spirit. The menu offers everything from steak to salad to shrimp to keep your whole group satisfied before or after the game.

If you’re not going to the game itself, you can still head to the Bronx to see the game from the eyes of a real New Yorker at Stan’s Sports Bar, located at 836 River Ave. This classic New York fan venue is jam-packed with fans and locals there to catch every minute of the World Series.


Located directly across from Citizens Bank Ballpark, McFadden’s Ballpark sports 33 high definition plasma TVs and two projector screens so fans can see the game from every seat in the house. Whether or not you were lucky enough to score tickets, McFadden’s is a good game-day option.

Or if you’re more interested in local Philadelphia flare, head to The Bayou Bar and Grill in Manayunk to watch the game. Always a fan favorite, Bayou boasts playoff food and drink specials as well as 25 TVs.

“We are excited to serve the airports at both host cities of the 2009’s World Series,” says The GO Group president, John McCarthy. “Our drivers enjoy meeting many fans who travel long distances to support each team.”
