Hey guess what? It’s the Superbowl this weekend! I’m not going to even pretend I know the difference between a Packer and a Steeler or a touchdown and a line backer, because I don’t. There’s my shameful secret–I know nothing about the game of football.
However, what I do know is that watching these kinds of things becomes infinitely more fun when surrounded by a rowdy bunch of people cheering on their team, as the beer and chicken wings flow freely all around. That’s the kind of exercise this girl can get behind.
With that in mind, I’ve compiled a list of a few places who are offering special prizes, prices and… fun. (I can’t think of another “p” word to go there.)
So get off the couch and enjoy the game surrounded by fans–it’s way more exciting than your living room.
They’re hosting a tailgate party starting at noon with prizes for the best dressed fan. Partake in the armchair QB contest to win a beer fridge! Also they’re serving BBQ chilli dogs from the Bud Truck (yum!) 323 Portage Avenue, across the street from the MTS Centre.
Elephant & Castle
They’re got half price wings along with their usual menu of delicious pub grub and appies perfect for sharing. Oh, they might have beer too. (Even more yum.) 350 St. Mary Avenue.
Watch the game on the HD big screeen while munching on wings and ribees for 39 cents. You can win an official Budweiser beer fridge too! The action starts at 4pm. 444 St. Mary Avenue.
And the following restaurants are offering appetizer and drinks specials as well:
Moxies, located inside the MTS Centre
Tavern United, 260 Hargrave Street
Boston Pizza, inside cityplace (they’re also giving away Superbowl hoodies!)
(Oh and as an aside, if you stop into Uptown Sports inside the skywalk at Portage Place (between the Bay and the mall), they’re going to have championship gear from the winning team. But you’ve got to get your name on the list now, because apparently it’ll be gone quick!)
Okay, now someone tell me, who should I be cheering for?
