On Sunday, the New York Giants will play the Philadelphia Eagles for a chance to play for a chance to play in the Superbowl, and you can be damn sure every restaurant and bar in the city with a screen and a business sense will be looking to fatten you up with irresistible gameday specials. Here’s a rundown of prime places in New York to watch Eli Manning and the Giants clip the Eagles’ wings, or the Eagles … peck out the Giants’ … eyes? Whatever:
● Southern Hospitality (Upper East Side) – Justin Timberlake’s Memphis mock-up makes no qualms about who it’s rooting for. Their menu includes a smoked eagle (turkey), clipped eagle wings, and the Big Blue Bird Crusher (blue frozen margarita), as well as Plaxico shots ($2 whenever the Giants score).
● Village Pourhouse (East Village) – With more TVs than a Best Buy, they offer $10 pitchers of Bud Light, a buffalo wing platter for $40 (includes a pitcher of bud light), $29 buckets of imported beer, and Giants trivia throughout the game — the prize for each question being one hour open bar. iPhones count as cheating. ● 4040 (Flatiron) – Believe it or not, people still come here to watch sports. Owner Jay-Z doesn’t, but he isn’t really “people.” Check their website for specials. ● Brother Jimmy’s (Midtown) – Will attempt to prove their BBQ prowess by offering an all-you-can-eat rib dinner at $22.95, including all-you-can-drink draft Bud and Bud Light. OK, that’s pretty good, but the offer is just two hours long and starts once the food arrives at the table. ● Mudville 9 (Tribeca) – Offering 20 oz. premium beers for $5, as well as something kooky called the Wing Ding, which includes all you can eat wings, fries and beer, for two hours, for only $23. See? Kooky. ● Tenjune (Meatpacking District) – The Giants celebrated at this sleek basement enclave following their Superbowl victory, and Eli Manning was there last Friday getting a b-day lapdance from the missus, and that defeats any game-winning catch. If they win again, expect giant antics here this Tuesday night.
