Trekking to Jacksonville without a football ticket? Watch the game in these Jax hot spots

Since the 1950s, the Florida-Georgia game has been called the "World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party." Call it what you may, the UF vs. UGA game is a huge deal - an SEC rivalry on neutral Jacksonville turf, an unbelievable tailgate and a great game of football. However, not everyone can swing for the $40 ticket. But you can still enjoy the game (and the killer Jacksonville atmosphere) at any of these locations:


For the beach-loving sports fan - Sneakers Sports Grille

111 Beach Blvd., Jacksonville Beach

Featuring TVs everywhere you look, six huge screens that are a story tall, five plasma screens around the inside bar and an outside patio with TVs and an ocean view, this beach grille has been a Jacksonville favorite since its opening in 2001. Add an order of loaded French fries and enjoy.


For the hot-waitress-loving/pub-crawling sports fan - Tilted Kilt

9720 Deer Lake Court, Jacksonville

Featuring (you guessed it) hot waitresses in (you guessed it again) teeny-tiny kilts, this modern sports pub prides itself on being simultaneously "American, Irish, Scottish and English." For those wishing to get smashed as quickly as possible, try a beer cocktail (yes, they do mix Corona and tequila). For those wishing to actually remember the game, Tilted Kilt is loaded with HDTV televisions.


For the "I'm starving" sports fan - TacoLu

1183 Beach Blvd., Jacksonville Beach
