Bottomless Mimosas, Breakfast Happy Hours & Transplanted Football Fans The Pier
Transplants from NFL cities gather to watch their hometown team. Or maybe they are not really fans, but simply know a good time, and like to go out because it’s a good time on the Hermosa pier.
Part of the reason for that is that the bars offer food and drink specials, including bottomless mimosas, with breakfast.
The places fill up early so if you want a table for the early games and want to take advantage of the free mimosa specials, you’re going to have to shake off that Saturday night hangover and be seated by 9 a.m.
As for what fans watch what teams at what bars, it’s pretty varied because of all the transplants. Sharkeez and Molloy’s get the most variety of fans, while the New England Patriots fans go to Tower 12, Chicago Bears fans are at Silvio’s and Seattle Seahawk fans turn normally placid Hennessey’s into the Hermosa version of the team’s 12th Man.
