If you live and breathe fantasy football like yours truly, you’re likely in multiple leagues (three for me). Some leagues may have already drafted, but others will be drafting soon. It can be hard to find a place spacious enough to host 10 to 14 people, so let us narrow down your search with the following options.
Craft Breww City in Farmington Hills offers hundreds of beer options. CBC is now taking reservations for draft parties. A Sunday would be ideal to host a draft party here, as happy hour lasts all day long. Other highlights include a full food menu, games and live entertainment – though you may want to pick a day with little noise!
On The Dunes in Commerce provides your league with a television to display your draft board, a personal server and drink specials for your entire league. There are also games including pool tables, cornhole and of course the golf simulators and a putting green, which means fun options to determine draft order. I will be drafting here tonight, as the defending champion of the league.
Ciccarelli’s 22 Sports Bar offers several fantasy draft perks at its Shelby Township location. Fantasy draft parties of eight or more receive a free draft board, a free pizza and every person in the group gets their first domestic bottle of beer for free! Ciccarelli’s has TVs everywhere, as well as large theater-style projection screens.
CK Diggs in Rochester Hills also gives fantasy football deals. The restaurant takes $25 off of your total bill over $100, offers $2 16-ounce cans of Pabst Blue Ribbon, $3 20-ounce drafts of Labatt Blue Light and a bucket of six domestic drafts for $12. In addition, there are weekly specials, including half off appetizers on Mondays (all day) and Saturdays (noon to 5 p.m.).
Wherever your fantasy draft is taking place this season, good luck and do your research! You don’t want to be that person who shows up unprepared, unless you want to be made fun of by the rest of the league. Happy drafting!
