The coronavirus pandemic has affected nearly all aspects of life as we know it. Sports events were severely impacted, with some canceled or postponed indefinitely. However, sports bodies have tried to create some sense of normalcy in recent months with basketball, baseball, football, and soccer leagues restarting, albeit under different conditions.
An American fall and winter tradition is America’s beloved NFL. Not all teams are allowing fans into their stadiums, but you can enjoy a game with friends and family at these fine Philadelphia eateries:
The Liberty Bell Beer Garden
If you go to the Parx Casino in Bensalem, Pennsylvania, your visit would not be replete without whiling away some time in Parx’s Liberty Bell Beer Garden. This adaptable dining area features a retractable roof and concertina doors that fold back neatly. According to prevailing trends, most people are more comfortable eating outdoors than indoors. Fresh air lessens COVID-19 transmission risk. While you are there, use Parx’s casino online option to bet on an NFL game before watching it in the Liberty Bell Beer Garden.
Those familiar with the American cold winter know that the Keystone State sees rain, sleet, snow, and freezing temperatures. However, Philadelphia is full of bars and restaurants where you can escape the extreme conditions and enjoy some warmth and cheer. Tradesman’s is one such example. This establishment features indoor and outdoor dining and sports viewing areas on different levels, each boasting state-of-the-art televisions and screens that allow you to enjoy every second of an NFL game. Take advantage of specials on libations and snacks to keep you going until that final whistle is blown.
Evil Genius Beer Company
Football fans looking to watch a match with friends while enjoying unique beer brews should travel no further than Fishtown’s Evil Genius Beer Company. The brewery offers indoor and outdoor seating for game viewing. Patrons are urged to buy its special game day packages to sate their thirst and hunger during a game. Social distancing rules apply, and you will not risk needing to fight off a cold or potential COVID-19 infection.
Germantown Garden Grill
The Germantown Garden Grill is an established entertainment facility that changed some of their 2020 offerings due to COVID-19. The owners have shut down the Vesper Day Club and Pool area to adhere to social distancing requirements. In its place, they have prepared a steakhouse eatery area that is perfect for NFL fans. Many visitors have found the seats on the open-air deck around the pool most agreeable as there are more than twenty television screens to choose from to enjoy game action. The Germantown Garden Grill has become so popular that fans are advised to book ahead of time to avoid disappointment.
