We’re hot off the heels of an epic win for the PNW but why end the streak? There are 20 athletes repping the Northwest at the Sochi Winter Games, which get kicked off officially with the opening ceremonies on Friday at 7:30pm on NBC. Here are four bars where you can enjoy happy hour and stick around to watch the festivities.
