In the last 100 years, Atlanta has only experienced one professional sports championship: the 1995 Braves winning the World Series. And while growing up in Cleveland I can relate to this all too well, I can also appreciate the city wide excitement building this week over the possibility of emerging as champions — especially over the Patriots (Sorry New England Fans).
This battle is more than just about football: one local gas station halted sales of Boston’s famous Sam Adams Beer. Atlanta’s own Sublime Donuts and Boston’s Kane’s Donuts have a friendly wager too, and are asking Falcons Fans to leave a score prediction in the Facebook comment section for a chance to win a dozen doughnuts. Check with your local donut shop to see if you can pick up some decorated Falcon themed donuts to kick off Sunday morning.
So, if you are going out or staying in – here are a few options to consider.
No need to fight the crowd — you can reserve a seat at Roswell’s Houck’s Grille. They’ll have a 13-foot projector screen in Mr. Bill’s Room and the game on everywhere in the restaurant. Three ways to reserve your seat: www.bit.ly/HoucksSuperbowl , call 770.993.8000 or email email@example.com.
