You can catch all major sporting events - from the Super Bowl to the World Series -on the two large, flat-screen televisions at the Shepaug Pub and Restaurant in Washington Depot, which brims with classic sports bar feel, full of pictures of famous athletes on the walls. Local sports fans pack this place for just about every big sporting event. Starting in the fall of 2011, the pub and restaurant will be open on Monday nights for that venerable American tradition, Monday Night Football. In nearby Litchfield, the Village Restaurant - recently voted the “Best Neighborhood Restaurant” by Connecticut Magazine - will whet your appetite for the big game with up to four screens devoted to sports. So while you may prefer to look out the picture window of your cabin, nobody says you have to completely shun the warm glow of a television (and the fire of those all-important Red Sox-Yankees games) while you get away in Western Connecticut.
