WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. – White Plains delis and bars are gearing up for the Super Bowl, which many say is the biggest event of the year for them.
Bob Hyland's Sports Page, at 200 Hamilton Ave., already has 75 reservations for Sunday's game, even though there are no New York teams in it this year, manager and bartender Ryan Monk said. The White Plains Mall pub had about the same number last year at this time, he added.
“It’s better if the Giants are in it,” he said. “New York teams usually help us out, but it’s still busy.”
In addition to 50 televisions throughout the bar, Sports Page has a projector screen in its back room and will be selling 50-cent wings, $9 pitchers, $3 drafts and $18 beer towers. Super Bowl specials Sunday do not apply to to-go orders, which can be placed by calling 914-437-8721.
Vintage Bar, 171 Main St., will have an open bar and buffet for $40 from 5 to 10 p.m. A few doors down, at Sofrito, 175 Main St., if you buy a draft you get entered into a raffle for either a tailgate grill, tower speakers or Samsonite luggage.
Like Sports Page, Butterfield 8, 147 Mamaroneck Ave., already has a lot of reservations for Sunday, when it will offer 50-cent wings and $3 Bud Light drafts. For to-go orders, call 914-358-4881.
Porter House, 169 Mamaroneck Ave., will offer its usual Sunday special of 25-cent wings. You can also buy five bottles of either Coors Light, Budweiser, Bud Light or Miller Light, and 20 wings for $20.
Wings are free during the game with the purchase of a beer at Brazen Fox, 175 Mamaroneck Ave. Next door, Ron Black's is offering free chili nachos at the bar during the game. There will be other food specials beginning at 4 p.m., including a $25 appetizer platter with wings, fried ravioli, chicken tenders and sweet potato waffle fries.
Unlimited wings and Bud Light drafts will cost $20 during the first half of the game at Black Bear and Wicked Wolfe on 166 Mamaroneck Ave.
Lazy Boy Saloon and Ale House, 154 Mamaroneck Ave., will offer its honey barbecue and Buffalo wings at half price, along with five domestic drafts for $20.
If you plan to watch the Super Bowl from home, Buffalo Wild Wings,1 Mamaroneck Ave., and Applebee’s, 27 Mamaroneck Ave., offer to-go orders.
If you’re looking for places that deliver, Domingo’s Deli & Pizza, 60-62 Gedney Way, has a special Super Bowl platter. This year, its owner, Domingo Moronta, of White Plains, added pizza to the Super Bowl special to give customers a little extra on what he calls one of the busiest days for sandwich orders. He will be buying his supply of wings later this week to ensure they are fresh for game day, he said. To place an order, call 914-831-5944.
Iron Tomato’s Super Bowl specials, which began Tuesday, include its regular selection of sandwiches and platters, but will also have available for delivery wings and football-shaped cakes through the start of the game Sunday, said Michael Borg, owner of the 57 Mamaroneck Ave. restaurant and bakery. To place an order, call 914-328-9400.
