Bills @ Chiefs, A Change

Hello all 2,200+ NYC Bills Fans!

I apologize that you haven’t heard from me recently, which I’ll get to in a second. Man, wasn’t that (perfect) Patriots game amazing? The way in which we dismantled the Belichik-led team that hasn’t been done in almost two decades was one of the most thrilling and satisfying experiences I’ve ever had as a football fan. I tweeted out after the game that the dynasty of the last 20 years was officially dead, the franchise is like any other franchise and Pats fans like any other fan.

I enjoyed the game from New England, which our family now calls home. We unexpectedly moved up to Eastern CT this season after a lot of strange forces pushed us up here including our Brooklyn apartment getting flooded 2x and becoming unlivable. It’s weird living somewhere where I only see Patriots/Red Sox apparel and almost never see a Jets/Giants hat, let alone a Bills one. That said I haven’t been able to make it into Penn 6 too much this year and have been overwhelmed with the move, adjusting and an insane period at work where the live events industry has exploded. That said, my wife and I still work in NYC and will continue to do so, which means I’ll still be holding down the fort for NYCBBB at Penn 6 along with Soreco, Phil, Alex and Kristin.

Speaking of Penn 6, there are some important changes being made this week since some fans had to be turned away last week:

“To accommodate as many members of #billsmafia as possible, the bar is clearing out the dining room and adding extra bars to serve everyone. We won’t be doing reservations inside this week, first come first serve with very limited seating. You can reserve a table outside to watch the game, there are still spots available!

Everyone inside the bar must purchase an unlimited drink special. $60 gets you unlimited beer/seltzer and food buffet. $80 gets you premium house open bar (beer, house wine, house mixed drinks) and food buffet. Food buffet will be wings, mozzarella sticks, and fries.

Avoid lines and arrive early, it’s going to be a blast! Please bring cash to keep the line moving. Make sure you have ID and vax info ready!”

Penn 6 is going to be THE place to be for Bills fans in NYC!

Like I said in the beginning of the season, anything less than a Super Bowl was a failure this year. This team is built to win a Super Bowl right now, and they need to get over the hump. The Chiefs are beatable, I don’t care if they’re not the same team we beat this season. Neither are we. If the Bills can play even close to how they did last week, the team should be playing in their second AFC Championship next weekend.

Let’s go Buffalo!!!!
