VOTED #1 PLACE TO WATCH SPORTS BY BROWARD-PALM BEACH NEW TIMES MAGAZINE’S BEST OF 2016.
Everyone is welcome at Slackers, but Wisconsinites feel truly at home in this dimly lit bar located in a shopping center on Marina Mile. Owner Jon Slack never intended his bar to become Broward’s Little Milwaukee. But Slack, a Wisconsin native, played the Packers football game every Sunday and decorated the interior with Packers memorabilia, like a framed newspaper from the 2010 Super Bowl, an Aaron Rodgers jersey, and a banner that says, “Packers Country.” There’s no bad seat in the house to catch a sports game.
The walls are covered with more than 30 flat-screen TVs. You don’t need a Wisconsin connection to appreciate the goodies on the menu, like bratwursts topped with sauerkraut or cheese curds that are filled with white cheddar cheese from the Badger State. There’s even a beer on tap called Slacker’s Wisconsin Amber that’s brewed in Middleton. But the drink of choice is the Hell Mary, a bloody mary served with skewers of greasy toppings like bacon, a boiled egg, cheddar cheese cubes, pickle, celery, olives, pepperoncini, cherry tomatoes, and a pearl onion.
