Broward and Palm bars to wach the Heat play the NBA finals

Sport your #WhiteHotHeat gear at these South Florida bars that will air the Miami Heat's games in the NBA finals.

Boynton Beach's new Bad Ragaz Hall and Biergarten, 1417 S. Federal Highway, rocks a 100-inch HD screen, and the bar's self-serve taps let you pay for beer by the ounce. Call 561-336-3297.

For buy-what-you-drink prices in Fort Lauderdale, take to American Social, 721 E. Las Olas Blvd. Some specials include $4 drafts and select half-off appetizers, depending on the day. Click here for happy-hour info.

Hollywood's Heat central is Whiskey Tango, a laid-back joint close to the downtown parking garage and other easy-going bars, such as Mickey Byrne's and the Native Florida Tap Room. Whiskey Tango, 1903 Hollywood Blvd., sets up giveaways on game day, so check the bar's Facebook page, linked in the name above, for updates.

The Boca Raton college crowd finds solace at the Night Owl, 497 NE 20th St. On Thursdays, well liquor is free before midnight and draft beer is free after midnight. Check the Facebook link above for game-day specials.

Bru's Room Sports Grill, with locations from Coconut Creek to Boynton Beach, airs all the games in a true sports bar atmosphere: Bru's Room was founded by ex-Miami Dolphins linebacker Bob Brudzinski. Check the website and Facebook page for game-day deals.

But the cheapest drinks will always be at your local Miller's Alehouse, Flanigan's or Duffy's Sports Grill. These bars are not showy, but there's nothing better than being consumed by the euphoria of a room full of people roaring for LeBron James' dunks -- with a $2 beer in hand, to boot.
