Bills at Jets / Tailgate on November 2, Get Tickets Now!

Hello all,

1st place in the AFC East! Feels great, no? I took a page from Shady and was walking around telling my coworkers to “Come talk to the winners!” It didn’t go over too well…

Speaking of AFC East, the Jets are offering us group rates again. Tickets either $65 or $45.

  • Here is the link to order:
  • Use this promo code when prompted: BACKERS17

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.

Hello all,

Are you ready for some football?

I’m sure everyone already knows, the Bills get things started this Sunday at 1 against the Ravens.

Here are some links for all the newbies on the list:



Rex and Rob Reunited
Michelle Girardi Zumwalt, who produced ESPN’s 30 for 30 Four Falls of Buffalo, is at it again with Rex and Rob Reunited, which premieres tonight on MSG at 10:30 in the NYC Area (8:30 in Buffalo and Rochester). Michelle has built quite the resume, of course her most prestigious role was a writer for NYCBBB. 😉

PUSH Buffalo – NYC Event Invite


PUSH Buffalo invites you to a terrace party to celebrate how far Buffalo has come, and to envision an even brighter future. As a city that was torn apart by decades of disinvestment, we are reclaiming the crown of the Queen City and the future wellbeing of our communities. Buffalonians from the North, South, East and West Sides are coming together to reimagine and remake our city into one that we’re proud of; into one that holds true to the “City of Good Neighbors,” with access to family-sustaining jobs, decent homes to live in, and healthy and strong neighborhoods. As PUSH Buffalo members and community residents realize their dreams can be reality, they have put Buffalo on the forefront of a movement powered by community-driven revitalization.

Join us on September 22nd at An Evening for Buffalo—a celebration of the progress Buffalo has made, with people like you and hundreds of others at the forefront of the fight for a vibrant and just city. A glimpse of some of the exciting progress we will be sharing with you:

  • The completion of 19 new building sites, making a total of 86 affordable housing units on the West Side of Buffalo
  • The addition of 2 new affordable commercial units that support our city’s diversity and culture
  • Finalizing the redevelopment plans for School 77—The school will become 32 units of affordable senior housing and a community hub for Buffalo’s Westside

Please join us in NYC this fall in acknowledging the incredible accomplishments that PUSH Buffalo and our city have made, and recognizing the movement builders and workers that have made it all possible. Attendance is free, but a request for your voluntary financial support will be made. To RSVP to An Evening for Buffalo, email Aaron Bartley
