Miami Heat vs. Indiana Pacers: Six Best Places to Watch the Game
Wednesday evening's playoff game was a true nail-biter. With the clock ticking down in overtime, LeBron James won the game for the Miami Heat with two seconds on the clock!
Laine Doss Miami Heat go after the Indiana Pacers again tonight.
That was just game one!
Tonight at 8:30 p.m. the Heat face the Pacers for another white-knuckle game. Tickets are going for astronomical prices and you have an entire three-day weekend of partying. You've got to budget your money somewhere, so may we suggest skipping the AAA (and the $40 parking), and heading out to one of these great places instead?
So, get out your best white T-shirt (gotta show solidarity), grab a few friends, and watch the game at one of these joints:
Eat Like the Heat at Blackbird Ordinary

Want to eat like the Heat? Chef Michael Jacobs is the official food service provider for the Heat and he's at Blackbird Ordinary tonight for his Hidden Kitchen pop-up.
He's serving up street-food-style items like veggie tacos, slow roasted pulled pork Bahn Mi, brisket truffle mac and cheese and more (including a special "eat like the Heat" dish, which is a little something that he whipped up for the team before the game). Could be the DWade wrap, or the Norris Cole turkey meatball. You have to go there to find out. All food is $5 per serving and you can munch out while watching the game on the huge projection screen on the outside patio. And, of course, the cocktails are some of the best in the city. Starts at 5 p.m.

Zoltan This entire room is your TV screen tonight!
