Philly Bars and Restaurants Showing the Eagles-Vikings Game on Sunday

This Sunday's NFC Championship game is a doozy. Here's where to watch it.

McGillin’s Iggletini

These past few months have been quite a rollercoaster ride for Eagles fans, what with Carson Wentz’s torn ACL and last Saturday’s somewhat shaky (yet thrilling) win against the Falcons.

But the ride continues this Sunday as the Birds will get to host Minnesota at the Linc. Below: all the best bars and restaurants showing the game.

Mad Rex, Northern Liberties
Sound on: Yes
Football will apparently survive the apocalypse, so Mad Rex is showing the Eagles game at their bar and lounge. They’re serving $3 drafts of their Mad Rex IPA, Bud Light, Miller Lite, and Yuengling. They’re also offering free Mac Rex IPA drafts with the purchase of any burger and one free order of loaded fries per party. Plus, when the Birds score — as we know they will many, many times — they’re offering something called a Flaming Eagles Shot.

Yards will be serving up their green-tinged Philly wings, which get their color from a sauce made from spicy long hot peppers, for Sunday’s game.

La Peg, Old City
Sound on: Yes
Assuming the weather holds out, they’ll project the game on their massive outdoor screen, with drinks from Pegsicle — La Peg’s ice bar — and tailgate-inspired burgers and bites like fried cheese curds from chef Peter Woolsey.

Watch the game at their upstairs bar starting 30 minutes before kickoff. Game time specials include southern poutine topped with pork belly and a fried egg for $5, spicy dry rub wings for $6, BBQ chicken sliders for $6, and lager drafts for $3.

McGillin’s Old Ale House, Midtown Village
Sound on: Yes
Philly’s oldest continually operating pub traditionally only serves green beer at St. Patrick’s Day — but for the first time ever, they’ll offer it when the Eagles play this Sunday. Or sip a bright green Iggletini — that’s vanilla vodka, creme de menthe, and half and half — for something sweeter.

Cinder, Rittenhouse

Whether they’re showing the game or streaming The Crown, Martha doesn’t typically play video with the sound on. But you’ll be able to watch the action while sipping their happy hour specials — 1/2 off one of their excellent craft beers and $1 off all other drafts, wine, beer and cocktails.
