If you couldn’t score $6,000 tickets for Super Bowl LIV, don’t despair.
Morristown haunts such as the Grasshopper Off the Green, the Iron Bar, Revolution and South Street Social all promise 50-yard-line seats, in front of multiple big screens, at prices that will leave plenty left over for rent, car down payments and groceries.
Viewing parties, drink specials and giveaways are on tap Sunday to keep patrons entertained during timeouts as the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs do battle at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, FL.
“There’s pretty much not a seat in the bar where you can’t have a TV in front of you,” said David Monllor, general manager of the Iron Bar and Revolution.
Ten screens will feature the game, Monllor said, and both bars will offer game day specials, beginning at noon in the Iron Bar, with beers starting at $3, Finlandia vodka drinks for $5, and $5 appetizers.
Specials at Revolution start at 6 pm, a half hour before the opening kickoff. Look for the venue’s Revolution Lager on tap for $5, along with brews from Victory Brewing Company. Giveaways of T-shirts, portable coolers and other backyard party gear are planned at both locations.
At South Street Social, festivities begin at 6 p.m. Ten TV monitors and two projector screens will carry all the action, said manager Gardner Lonsberry.
A $20-per-person buffet will include buffalo wings, cheddar sliders, pigs in a blanket and unlimited soft drinks. No reservations are required. Giveaways will include apparel items, an Amazon Echo and Google Home, Lonsberry said,
Grasshopper off the Green invites patrons the bring family and friends to spend Super Bowl Sunday at its Irish pub. Football fare will include ‘Hopper sliders, chicken wings and $3.50 pints of Coors Light.
Prizes and giveaways will include a Heineken beach cruiser bicycle, a Jets jersey bearing the name of quarterback Samuel Darnold, a Giants jersey with running back Saquon Barkley’s name, and a YETI Tundra cooler.
