The world may have changed drastically since last year’s Super Bowl in Miami, but the excitement for this Monday’s game remains the same.
Penrith will once again be celebrating the biggest event on the American sporting calendar, with several local venues hosting their own Super Bowl parties next week.
Defending champions Kansas City will aim to go back to back when they take on the GOAT, Tom Brady and his Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Super Bowl LV in Tampa, Florida.
The NFL has never been this popular in Australia and locations in Penrith and surrounding areas will be cashing in on that hype on Monday.
One of the best local venues to enjoy the Super Bowl this year is Penrith Panthers Leagues Club. Not only will the team be showing the game live and loud in the club’s swanky new Basement Sports Bar from 10am, but they’ll be serving $1 wings, $25 Byron Bay beer buckets, juicy American burgers and yummy hot dogs.
Over in the Penrith CBD, the Red Cow Hotel will also be going all out for Super Bowl LV.
The Red Cow will have $1 wings, $25 Bud buckets and $22 Sports Fan Boxes, which comprise of a Pluto pup, burger, wings and fries!
Across town at the lovable Kingswood Hotel, local gridiron fans can catch every kick, tackle and touchdown on their massive screen whilst throwing back an ice cold beer and tucking into a delicious chicken schnitzel with gravy.
In Emu Plains, O’Donoghues Irish Pub will be turning American for the day with $22 and $29 Sports Fan Boxes along with $25 buckets of Budweiser. Plus, one lucky winner will walk away with a Patrick Mahomes NFL jersey just for purchasing a bucket of Bud or Sports Fan Box.
Meanwhile in North St Marys, the Lucky Australian Hotel will be offering up chicken wings, American-style hot dogs and Budweiser specials to keep everyone happy throughout the game.
So, instead of finding a lame excuse to get out of work this Monday, why not make a day of it and invite your whole workplace along to celebrate Super Bowl LV – just tell your boss the Weekender approved it!
