Rangers v Fiorentina & Celtic v Rangers

Rangers v Fiorentina will be shown at the Blue Room on Thursday, with a 2.45 kick-off. There will be no cover charge for this game, since it is being broadcast for free on Fox Soccer Channel.

Celtic v Rangers will also be shown on Sunday, with a 7.30am kick-off. Note that there is a $15 cover charge for this game, and that entry to the Blue Room will be by the side door, a few yards down 60th Street.

There won't be any food for sale during the Old Firm game, but feel free to bring your own breakfast with you. The Big Apple Bears recommend the Cozy Corner one block up the street from the Blue Room.

If you have never been to New York before, please note that it is customary to tip bartenders here. The usual rate is $1 per drink. Just leave it on the bar. In many bars, including the Blue Room, a bar tender will often give you a free drink at some point to thank you for the tips.
