It’s game day in Bay Ridge!
There may not be a New York team duking it out for the Super Bowl trophy, but the Big Game is enough of a reason to consume your body weight in wings and party hard until the clock runs out. And the night before the game, rev yourself up with some rock ’n’ roll!
On Saturday, sleep in and roll out of bed at 4 pm for some raspy rock by Head ’N’ South at Red, White, and Brew (8910 Fifth Ave. between 89th and 90th streets). Later, stroll over to the Greenhouse Café (7717 Third Ave. between 77th and 78th streets) at 10 pm for a time warp from Rock Farm, which plays the best rock jams of the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s. Or for something entirely different, stumble into the Wicked Monk (9510 Third Ave. between 95th and 96th streets) for some late-night hip-hop jams by 3 am Tokyo.
On Sunday, come armed with an empty belly for a chili cook-off at Lock Yard (9221 Fifth Ave. between 92nd and 94th streets), because what other food would you start game day with? Register your team of chili cooks or just feast on the hard work of others and cast your vote for Bay Ridge’s best chili. The pre-game shebang starts at 1 pm, and the suggested donation of $10 at the door goes to the Fisher House Foundation, which is dedicated to helping veterans and military families.
Then loosen up your vocal cords for cheering on your team by shouting “Bingo!” at the Pour House (7901 Third Ave. at 79th Street). The pre-game game session gets going at 3 pm.
And when the game kicks off at 6:30 pm, you should be at PC’s Bar and Grill (7215 Fifth Ave. between 72nd and 73rd Streets), where you can knock back pints at the open bar, wolf down wings, and maybe even snag one of the raffle giveaways— all for the low, low price of $40. And, of course, you can watch the game on the watering hole’s seven screens, which includes a 65-inch flat screen in the back room for your viewing pleasure.
