‘Squish the Fish’ with Buffalo.com at Brawler’s
blog by Ben Tsujimoto • October 15, 2013 @ 7:24am
The memories from the first Buffalo.com Bills viewing party at Brawler’s Back Alley Deli are mostly fond.
As you can see from the photos scattered throughout this post, Buffalo.com’s Katie Costello sprightly handled the sponsor giveaways, then tried her hand at football poses with former Buffalo.com’er Kat Przybyla. ‘A’ for effort, I suppose. (At least the delightful BuffaBLOG trio (right) stayed under control.)
Brawler’s wings and beef on weck satiated the local Bills fans in attendance, and $3 pints managed to take some of the edge off the Amish Rifle’s late interception that sealed Buffalo’s doom in its loss to New England.
We’re hoping for better luck this year—at least on the gridiron—at Buffalo.com and Brawler’s Deli Bills viewing party, scheduled for noon to 4:30 p.m. Sunday in the basement of Pearl Street Grill and Brewery when the Bills fly south to face AFC East rival Miami.
Check out the Facebook event page for updates and see how many jovial Buffalonians are already attending.
We may also feature compromising photos of Dolphins like Ryan Tannehill and Mike Wallace, but that’s to-be-determined.
The Buffalo.com-Brawler’s Deli event is free to attend and the beer ($3 pints) and food (10 percent off if you’re wearing a football jersey) specials equal last year’s, so don’t hesitate to order a little extra comfort food and tip your bartender.
Speaking of the raffle, here is the rundown of this year’s prizes:
—gift certificate to Spruce Ridge Golf Course
—gift certificate to Excuria Salon and Spa
—family passes to the Buffalo Zoo
—UB football tickets
Miami stands at 3-2 overall, 1.5 games ahead of the 2-4 Bills. Last Sunday’s overtime loss to the Cincinnati Bengals instilled a little hope in the Bills, however, as emergency QB Thaddeus Lewis tossed two fourth-quarter touchdowns and led the Bills back in Frank Reich-like fashion before a Mike Nugent OT field goal ended the affair.
Join the greatest fans in the NFL at a local business for no other reason than to hang out, enjoy the fact that we still have an NFL team, and meet new friends around a few pints of beer.
