Due to the continued stalemate between Time Warner Cable and the major pay TV carriers in Los Angeles, the new Lakers‘ station TWC Sportsnet and TWC Deportes, which have exclusive rights to show all Lakers game this year, the only way Lakers fan will be able to see the Lakers this year is by either subscribing to Time Warner Cable or going to an establishment that has Time Warner Cable. The major problem is that most bars and restaurants that center their business around showing sports programming have Directv. Raining3s.com identified a need to put a list together of bars and restaurants that both subscribe Time Warner Cable and will show Lakers games for us Lakers fans. I would recommend calling ahead or clicking on the website link we provided to get more information about their menu, whether they sell alcohol and confirm they are showing the Lakers game on a particular night. Here is the most comprehensive list of its kind out there:
