If you’re in Chicago hoping to catch a few football games this season, then don’t expect these two bars to entertain you.

According to the Chicago Sun Times, The Velvet Lounge and Bureau Bar will not be playing any NFL games this season in support of Colin Kaepernick.

In an Instagram post on Wednesday, August 23, 2017, both bars posted the same picture on their pages with the same caption saying they, “WILL BE SUPPORTING COLIN KAEPERNICK’S CAUSE AND WILL NOT BE SHOWING ANY NFL GAMES UNTIL SOMETHING CHANGES. WE LOOK FORWARD TO SERVING YOU.”



This is a huge show of support, especially for bars during the NFL season. Way to go Chicago! We see you!

    Watch when the camera pans the crowd at an NFL game. How many folks of color do you see? Not many, not many. By week 2 this “boycott” will be long forgotten. Let’s move on now to more important things and save face.

    I haven’t watched any football and my house is full of family having dinner, shooting pool, and all kinds of craziness! We love it!

    Chicago should concern themselves with the number of murders that are committed daily. People are still going to watch and attend the games.

  4. 2 bars in Chicago, oh yeah that’ll have major impact on games played in the other 49 states
    looks like the sale of big screen TV’s will sky rocket in Chi town

      There is something to be said about being on the right side of history, too bad you’ll never be able to say it. Sad lil man.

    • And who’s to say this is the right side of that history? “hands up don’t shoot” was a movement based on a lie that simple minded kool-aid drinkers like you’re self-bought into: Stay Broke Stay on the Plantation my sista

        And here in lies the problem, you’re to stupid to know right from wrong, I can’t help you, I can’t do what your mother’s should have done prior to your birth.

      • Well thank god my “mother’s” didn’t do like yours and run to the abortion clinic
        I may not know right from wrong but I know how not to join an Idiot Parade

        Do you know what an abortion is? If she would have run to the abortion clinic, I wouldn’t be here dummy, nor would her other children. You’re the grand poohbah of the Idiot Parade.
