Feb 03, 2012 12:02 am
Super Bowl Sunday will be a busy day local bars and restaurants feeding hungry football fans and the Register-Star's John Mason does a round up of what's on tap in the area. Melino’s Pub, the 60-year-old bar on upper Columbia Street in Hudson, has 16 TVs to watch the game on; two of them have 82-inch screens. Angela’s Pizza and Pasta in Greenport offers three different game day family packs, with pizza, wings, garlic knots, salad and soda, depending on the package. They also have a three-foot sub, which needs to be ordered a day ahead of time, and family-style dinners to go. Don Conte of Bubba Bean Barbecue, at 93 Union Turnpike in Greenport, tells the paper his place has "the best (chicken) wings in the area." He'll be selling them until 6 p.m. Sunday, and then close down for the game. M.J. Sports Bar & Grill, 34 Hudson Ave., Chatham, sells seats to a private party. A ticket buys a designated seat for the game and an all-you-can-eat buffet that includes steamed clams, shrimp cocktail, chicken wings and homemade 18-inch subs. M.J.’s boasts 11 TVs, but as of Tuesday, there were only four seats left, out of 70. Park Falafel and Pizza, 11 N. Seventh St., Hudson, offers its own Super Bowl catering package, including 60 falafel balls, a quart of Jerusalem salad, a pint of humus, two pints of other salads, tahini dressing and 20 pita halves.Since it's the 46th Super Bowl, Park Falafel is offering a cheese pizza for 99 cents more to the first 46 people to order the package. Lagonia’s on Main Street in Philmont, will be doing takeout — wings and pizzas — and people can come by to watch the game on the 50-inch screen.
