By now you’re familiar with the dispute between Versus and DirecTV. (if not, click here)

So if you’re a DirecTV customer, and you want to watch the Capitals game on Tuesday, DISH Network has been kind enough to let us know which bars in D.C. will have the game on television, since they have DISH Network:


- Lucky Bar (1221 Connecticut NW)
- Cheesecake Factory (5345 Wisconsin Ave. NW)
- Awash Restaurant (2218 18th NW)

This list is in no way definitive … I haven’t gone to the trouble of finding out which bars have cable or what packages they carry and so on. But if you’re itching to get out and watch the game, it’s a start.

Me? I’ll be on my couch, since carrying Versus is one of the few things my cable provider does right.
