PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — Restaurants and bars in and around Philadelphia are gearing up for a big one Super Bowl party.
“We expect to fill up early. Last week the game was at 3 p.m. and we filled up by 1 p.m., so we’re expecting a huge crowd,” said Eric Spicer, general manager of PJ Whelihan’s in Haddonfield.
First come, first served at PJ Whelihan’s on Super Bowl Sunday. The general manager said takeout orders are already piling up.
“We’ve been running the Eagles throughout the playoffs. Fifty wings for $50, so we’ll still have them on game day,” Spicer said.

McGillin’s Olde Ale House in Center City just started selling tickets Thursday morning for their Super Bowl and they sold out in minutes. For $150 you can eat and drink as much as you want.
“It’s busy but not packed, so it won’t feel like a Saturday night. Everyone will have free access,” said Chris Mullins, co-owner of McGillin’s.
They’ll have plenty of green beer, and they’ve added a festive twist to their shepherd’s pie with green mashed potatoes just for the Birds.
Football fans were elbow to elbow at the Live! Casino & Hotel Philadelphia for the NFC Championship this past weekend and this game will be no different.
“There’s a table minimum if you reserve a table. You can reserve it on OpenTable. Everyone else just walks in, it’s going to be crazy. A bunch of bartenders, a bunch of beer kegs, a bunch of specials and everything,” said Brian Uran, VP president of marketing for Live! Casino.
