Some Info, Thank you BillsDaily.com

Hello all,

Just a quick update/heads up. The bars will only play the preseason games that air live on the NFL Network. Tonight’s game, unfortunately, won’t be shown at the bars. We’ll send out an update about the rest of the preseason games very soon.

BillsDaily.com
I want to give a big thank you to Steve Saslow and the staff at BillsDaily.com for all the years of hard work and dedication. They’ve decided to shut down the site. This has been my one an only go to site for Bills news for the last 20 years. While not the prettiest looking site, it gave me every bit of info on one page. I think their genius was in their ability to summarize EVERYTHING going on with the team (news, depth chart, injuries, front office/free agents) in as concise of a manner possible. I will miss it dearly. Thank you again Steve!

Jets Game Tailgate
The Jets are once again offering us group ticket rates for the game at Met Life on November 11. A lot more about the yearly tailgate will come soon, but in the meantime if you are interested in tickets, you can visit our special page: http://jetsgroups.com/backers

Bills at Jets – Tailgate Info 2017

TIME

  • Game Thursday, November 2, 2017.
  • Game starts at 8:25pm.
  • Lot opens at 3:25pm (NFL rules)
  • I suggest you get there first thing if you want to park right next to the action. The lot doesn’t fill up very quickly so if you aren’t there first thing, you probably won’t be too far away.

LOCATION

DIRECTIONS

WHO CAN COME

FOOD AND DRINKS

  • Food and drinks are bring your own.
  • Do you need to bring a grill (or other cooking equipment)? There are others with them. I’m sure they would share space, but I would highly recommend either bringing your own or sandwich type foods.

TICKETS

  • If you need tickets ($45 or $65):
    • Here is the link to order: http://bit.ly/billsbackers
    • Use this promo code when prompted: BACKERS17
    • Don’t forget parking ticket if driving!

MISCELLANEOUS

  • EXTREMELY IMPORTANT!
    •  A few years back, the lot was left an utter disaster. Jets/NFL security wasn’t happy.
    • Be respectful. Yes the Meadowlands was built on a garbage dump, but lets not add more garbage on top. All kidding aside, we need to be respectful.
    • We need a volunteer to bring garbage bags.
    • Ken “Pinto Ron” Johnson is the man responsible for starting this tailgate, lets not mess up his reputation. He’s a legend.
  • Is MetLife safe for Bills fans? My personal experience is yes absolutely. Yes there will be some trash talking, but nothing too bad. Like any place in the world, it almost always takes 2 to escalate.
  • Will there be a TV to watch the game? Most likely not.
  • Orange Parking pass http://nycbbb.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/2012-metlife-parking-site-map.pdf
  • McFadden’s and Calicos will still have the game on.
  • If a group of more than 8 is needed, please call Zach Gilbert with the NY Jets, 973-549-4712. Mention the NYCBBB!

 

2017 Draft Party and 16 Years!

Hello all 2,000+ NYC Bills Fans:

It’s that time of the year again. No, not the NFL Draft, but when we realize it’s been another year of playoff-less Bills football. 16 years ago we started this thing on 42nd and 2nd in midtown (actually the first gathering when we traded for Drew Bledsoe was on the Upper East Side), and since then we’ve gotten married, had kids, switched careers. Matt and I would joke about the “old guys”, now we are those guys.

Hell, even the length of time we’ve been running NYCBBB has grown old enough to start driving a car in Western NY. After the Sabres debacle of last week you have to hope the Pegulas are trending upward on the learning curve of running pro franchises. It was a good move to bring in a PR guy as showing off your disastrous front office through leaks and cringe-worthy press conferences won’t strike confidence in us fans. Hopefully more is being done behind the scenes, realizing the Russ Brandon-esque popular marketing moves may be fun for fans but don’t translate into wins on the field.

That said (again), let’s talk NFL Draft. Who the hell has the final call on the 10th overall pick – GM Doug Whaley, Coach Sean McDermott or the Pegulas? Sounds like the Bills are exploring trading up or down, personally I doubt they take a QB early and go defense instead to work in McDermott’s system. Come join us this Thursday and find out!

We’ll offer these two options both Thursday 4/27 and Friday 4/28 from 7-11PM:

1) Free wristband good for $3 domestic AND import drafts, including Labatt Blue (we have a bunch of new imports and micro-brews–we actually added 5 draft lines) AND half priced mixed drinks (top shelf)

2) Pay $15 at the door, good for unlimited chicken wings (by the order) and also receive the same drink special above ($3 all drafts, half priced top shelf mixed drinks)

On Saturday we’ll do our standard special:

We’ll see you there!

2017 NY/NJ Games
Looks like the Bills are opening up the season against the Jets at home, and then play here for a Thursday night game. Home Openers are tough to plan for due to limited tickets, but we’ll plan a tailgate for the game here as always.

2018 Winter Classic
Rumor has it the Sabres will take on the Rangers at Citi Field for the Winter Classic on New Year’s Day. It’s too bad there are no bars over there for us to meet up at. Oh wait, McFadden’s has a massive pub IN the stadium! We’ve already chatted, and once things are confirmed we’ll totally be planning a Sabres event around that. Details to come.
LET’S GO BUFFALO!!
