The Tokyo Olympics are officially underway, and like we do each time, New Yorkers will flock to their favorite sports bars to catch the games.
However, this is year is quite different. The 2020 Summer Olympics were postponed to 2021 because of the pandemic, and there will be no spectators in the arena or sports venues making for a different vibe than in years past.
The opening ceremony already took place in Tokyo but because of the time difference, but it'll be shown again Friday evening in the U.S. It's safe to say sports bars across the boroughs will be screening the games but some bars and restaurants are hosting special viewing parties between Friday, July 23, and Sunday, August 8 that you'll want to take part in.
