Before I get to that I must say that just as we have for the past 7 years CSR will have open threads and call in radio shows throughout the draft for those of you who will watch from home. We are here for you so check back tomorrow for the details.
But if you are looking for a public place such as a sports bar to hang out with other fans, preferably Panther fans then hopefully someone else in your town is too. This post is a call to CSR members to post the location of their local watering hole. A name and address will do or a link to a Facebook page or website as well.
If you are in the Charlotte area the best spot by far is the Panthers Bud Light draft party:
Panthers to hold draft party
Watch the final day of the NFL Draft with Panthers players and personalities at the 2014 Draft Party presented by Bud Light. The party is scheduled for noon-5 p.m. on Saturday, May 10, at the Harris Blvd. location of Hickory Tavern (9010 Harris Corners Parkway in Charlotte).
Admission is free, with food and beverages available for purchase. Fans will have the opportunity to get autograhps from former and current players – including members of the 2013 draft class - and enjoy appearances by Sir Purr and PurrCussion. Play-by-play announcer Mick Mixon will conduct a question-and-answer session.
The party will benefit Second Harvest Food Bank. Fans can bring by three non-perishable food items or donate $3 to be entered into a raffle for a chance to win autographed items and Panthers gear. Fans will be able to watch the NFL Draft on big screen televisions inside Hickory Tavern as well as outside at the Bud Light Beer Garden. Other outdoor activities include face painting, Twist the Balloon Man, a bounce house and field goal kick.
Boy that sounds like a blast honestly.
Now if you are instead in Charleston, SC the official CSR draft party is being held at Max-n-Henry's on Folly Rd (James Island) Charleston, SC:

I will be submitting an entry in the contest. So if you are in the area please drop by and say 'hello'. Just ask one of the bartenders to point me out, they all know me (all too well). That $50 is mine!
So now I need the rest of you to post your known Panther NFL draft viewing place for those who may be looking.
If not we will see you on the open threads!
