Why watch President Barack Obama's 2013 State of the Union Address alone when you can have the added entertainment of watching it in a crowd.
Here are Prospect Heights bars that have confirmed they'll be showing it. The address starts at 9 p.m. and will be carried on most major channels. For more information on the address, The Week has a nice "viewer's guide."
Branded Saloon, our favorite Western-themed, lgbt-friendly, bar will be showing it in the back room on a large screen with plenty of seating. 603 Vanderbilt Ave. at Bergen St. 718-484-8704
Carlton Park Watch it in style in this lovingly designed space while trying out their new, more casual menu. 636 Carlton Ave. 347-915-2222.
Atlantic Co. Formerly Ortine, this friendly gastropub will be showing it using a digital projector and homemade transparent screen in the window. They do this for their movie nights, so we know it works.
