The Super Bowl is the biggest event on the American sporting calendar, and once again Penrith will be getting in on all the action with a number of local venues hosting parties this Monday morning.
The Kansas City Chiefs are favourites to win their first Super Bowl title in 50 years when they take on Jarryd Hayne’s old mob, the San Francisco 49ers, at Super Bowl LIV in beautiful Miami, Florida.
Over the past decade the NFL in Australia has increased in popularity and several venues in Penrith and surrounding areas will be cashing in on that hype next week.
One of the best local venues to enjoy the Super Bowl this Monday, February 3 is O’Donoghues Irish Pub in Emu Plains. Not only will the gang be showing the game live and loud on their mega screen from 10.30am, but they’ll also be serving up $6 Coronas, hot wings, loaded hot dogs and nachos.
Across the Nepean, the Red Cow Hotel will fire up from mid-morning with the big game live on their giant screen as well as $5 VB schooners and $10 wings.
Down the road at the Peachtree Hotel, local NFL fans can enjoy all the action live on the pub’s big screens from 10.30am whilst getting stuck into USA food specials all day long.
Over in South Penrith, the Jamison Hotel in Smith Street will be getting into the Super Bowl spirit with delicious $10 American lunch meals and ice cold beverages.
The Colonial Hotel in Werrington are going all out for Super Bowl LIV in Miami, with an array of screens showing the big game, cold beers, 50c Kansas wings and 16-inch San Fran pizzas!
Meanwhile in nearby North St Marys, the Lucky Australian Hotel will be offering up $5 Buds and $10 burgers to keep everyone happy in what’s set to be a hugely competitive match between the 49ers and Chiefs.
And last but not least, catch every kick, tackle and touchdown at the Kingswood Hotel or Colyton Hotel where the Super Bowl will be shown live and loud from 10.30am.
Instead of finding an excuse to get out work this Monday, why not make a day of it and invite the whole office along to celebrate this year’s Super Bowl – we’re pretty sure your boss will approve!
