It’s pre-Super Bowl Thursday, which means you have about 72 hours to decide how to spend the big day.
Don’t worry: we’re here to help.
Here are a few ways to eat, drink, and watch your way through Sunday’s spectacle — or avoid it altogether.
Wing Wings is rolling out two new menu items for Sunday: Hella Hot Buffalo Wings, which are a hotter version of their regular Buffalos, and F*cking Hot Wings, which have an extra spicy seasoning, super-spicy habanero buffalo sauce and freshly-chopped thai chiles. They also sells party packs of up to 100 wings, available via pre-order, if you want to enjoy that f*cking hotness in the comfort of your own home.
If your tastebuds needs some sweet relief after all those wings, why not cool down with some Three Twins Ice Cream? The former Lower Haighters return to the neighborhood Sunday, parking their truck outside Wing Wings from 11am to 3pm. They’ll be selling an undisclosed lineup of specialty flavors, including some vegan-friendly varieties.
Another option for those of you planning to watch the game at home: consider having Greenburgers handle all your snackin’ needs. They’ve got a special catering menu for Sunday featuring chicken fingers, Buffalo mac ‘n’ cheese, sloppy joes and more, and there’s free delivery if you pay in advance. Just hurry — orders have to be placed by noon today.
On the bar front, Mad Dog in the Fog will be having some as-yet-unannounced drink specials during the game. And once it’s over they’ll have DJs playing till the bar closes.
Danny Coyle’s will be showing the game in HD on their eight plasma TVs and big screen projector. They’ll have their usual beer specials — $2.50 cans of tecate & $3 bottles of Sam Adams. Also, a food truck called Celtic Catering will be parked outside all day selling hot dogs, wings and the like.
Nickies will be showing the Super Bowl of course, but before it starts they’ll be having their regular brunch service from 10am to 2pm, including $8 bottomless mimosas with the purchase of an entree and $5 pint-sized spicy Bloody Marys.
Do you not care about this game whatsoever? Consider heading to Vinyl, where they’ll be hosting a wine-and-bingo night from 6:30 to 9pm, with new games starting every half hour. Just get yourself a glass of wine if you want to play. The winner of each game will receive a complimentary glass of their choice.
Finally, we’re not sure if Toronado, Molotov’s, The Page or Noc Noc have any special plans for Sunday, but if we find out, we’ll update accordingly.
