Game Day: Where to watch and what to eat when the Birds play


It’s that time of year again where the City of Philadelphia bleeds green. To catch the Birds, there are plenty of local spots that are offering prime-time options and specialty deals for all of your Eagles’ viewing needs.


It’s not football Sunday without some pizza to go with the game, and all three SliCE locations (Italian Market, Washington Township and Fishtown) will be showcasing some special pies. The football-shaped pizzas are made by hand with mozzarella, hand-cut pepperoni and ricotta laces and can be purchased every Sunday at all locations, and available for Monday and Thursday night games as well. A few other options from SliCE include their Tailgating Meat Lovers and Vegan Victory, and additionally, the pizza pioneers also offer game day packages with pizza, wings, salads and other snacks.
