You should hope it’s closer to the latter.
Because, well, championship implications.
But also, more excuses to drop by this place.
Direct all pregame activities to Biscayne Tavern, a Triple A–adjacent bar with everything you’d want out of a Triple A–adjacent bar (draft beer, fried-oyster po’boys and plenty of TVs), now open in Downtown.
Come on in. Get comfortable. Say hello to your new Heat game-night home. Notice the big picture windows with views of Biscayne. And the chalkboard walls scrawled with daily specials. And the fact that you’re a five-minute walk from AmericanAirlines Arena.
To put it simply, this is where you’ll go to bask in the glory of NBA dominance with some braised pork shank and bacon-crusted mac and cheese. You’ll grab a gray upholstered booth with unobstructed TV sight lines. You’ll order up a bunch of sliders. And you’ll wash those sliders down with a beer. Probably a Duvel Single, since this is the only place in the city where it’s available on tap.
That’s some tremendous basking by you right there.
