Enjoying Super Bowl Sunday In Queens
Last year’s Super Bowl XLVI brought many New Yorkers together at their favorite bars and restaurants to celebrate as the New York Giants defeated the New England Patriots.
This year will not feature any New York teams—this year the Baltimore Ravens will be pitted against the San Francisco 49ers—but many of us will pull together for the big event just the same. We do not have to travel to New Orleans, the location of this year’s game, to enjoy the camaraderie and the competition of the biggest football event of the season.
Throughout Queens, many restaurants, bars and other community watering holes will televise the game while offering drink and food specials. Many places also offer delivery and pickup specials comprised of traditional football fare such as pizza and wings.
We encourage football fans, regardless of their team preferences, to enjoy the fun and festivities. The economic benefit to Queens and its businesses is great during this annual competition, and at a time when we see the unfortunate closing of decades-old classic locations in our beloved borough, splurging on an order of wings or a large pizza pie can make a significant difference for our economy.
Super Bowl Sunday has become an American classic for a good time. Whether you are catering a party at home or cheering alongside other diners and drinkers, consider making some of Queens’ diverse food options a part of your game day this year. Super Bowl XLVII will kick off at 6:30 p.m. EST on February 3. In 2014, Super Bowl XLVIII will be held in the New York metropolitan area.
