It was so fun taking the boys to Applebees last weekend to watch the Green Bay Packers vs the Chargers last weekend. Buddy is a crazy Packers fan while Doodle and I would rather “boo” them. lol Unfortunately, since our teams, the Vikings and Falcons were out of the running, we were there to support Buddy’s team.
When we walked in, I was happy to see all of the tvs tuned to the game. I asked to have a seat closest to the game, because quite honestly, I like hearing the game as it’s being played as well. Kind of fuels the fire for me. hahahaha
After we got our seats, I asked our waiter to turn up the volume. There wasn’t anyone near us or in our section so they didn’t seem worried about it. All of the staff was decked out in team jerseys. The boys fit in. Doodle will wear his jersey even if his team is out of the playoffs.
The boys had their typical meal of a burger and chicken strips. I tried one of their Clubhouse Grille sandwiches. I like trying something new each time we go, although my go-to is always their burgers!
While we waited for our food to come, more people filled in around us and were glued to the tv. I “may” have involved enough in the game that I yelled at the tv. Hey, I can’t help it! I get wrapped up in the games, what can I say? And I’m not the only one! There was yelling and whooping coming from the bar, too! The Applebees we were eating at has specials during the games at the bar! You should definitely check your local one to see what specials they have during the upcoming Big Game!
We weren’t able to stay for the whole game. You can only eat so much food at one sitting, at least with kids. I would prefer to stay for an entire game because I’m a football fanatic, even when it’s teams I don’t always care about. If you can’t have a party at your own house (mine is waaaay too tiny for a group of people) then hanging out with a group of friends or a bunch of strangers is a blast!
We were going to go watch 49ers vs the Panthers today, but the boys wanted to wait until next week’s games to go back to Applebees. As a single mom I’m on a budget and won’t be able to watch all of the games outside of the house, so I told the boys we could either go to this weekend’s games or next week’s Patriots vs Broncos game. They chose next week!
