The official regular NFL season is here!
As longtime readers know, I much prefer to watch the Pittsburgh Steelers at home or with friends, where the food is good, but mostly so we can actually pay attention to the game (and okay, multitask laundry/inbox cleanup). However, with the Steelers blacked out half the season anymore, I’m forced to turn to sports bars.
Earlier this week on PennLive and in Thursday’s The Patriot-News, I featured local bars and restaurants’ 2013 NFL season specials, from my neighborhood watering hole to downtown hot spots, including Big Woody’s, Al’s of Hampden, Center St. Grille, Penn Hotel Sports & Raw Bar, Flinchy’s, Brewhouse Grille, Mulligan’s, Legends, Pete’s, The Speakeasy, Moe’s – and of course, Arooga’s.
PennLive’s food critic, Mimi Brodeur, also had her top 5 picks (We only had one of the same!)
Here are a few more who are running football specials throughout the season.
MoMo’s BBQ & Grill offers a $5 Football Menu on Sundays, including:
- Bottle Caps (beer battered jalapeno slices)
- Pub Burger
- Chili Nachos
- BBQ Parfait
- Stuffed Onion Rings
- Smoked Chicken Drumsticks
Plus, $3 Captain Morgan drinks on Sundays at MoMo’s.
Nathan’s Bar & Grill – Yuengling Lager – $2 pint/$7 pitcher, 50 cent wings, clams, $2 chili cheese dogs, $5 mac’n cheese bites
Sierra Madre has reopened! And they still have the NFL Ticket with 10-ft screen with surround sound. Yuengling Lager pints are $2 on Sundays, plus 50 cent wings all day. Happy Hour runs 8-10 p.m. for the late game. Stop back for Monday Night Football with Coors Light on special – $2/pints, $8/pitchers – PLUS their famous Mexican halftime buffet (exception: Game 1, the buffet will be served at the end of the game).
Redskins fans know Zembie’s the place to be for football, too. Get $2 Yuengling Lager pints or $6 pitchers, plus 50 cent wings all day. Stick around for Happy Hour from 8-10 p.m. for the late game.
At Johnny Joe’s, wings are $6/dozen during football season Sundays.
