The scoop on Super Bowl XLV watch parties

Usually closed on Sundays, the Rathskeller is opening its doors this Sunday for a Super Bowl watch party.

“It was huge last year,” said Everett Price, Jr., manager of the Rathskeller.

Freshman Nicholas Schiller, a Steelers fan, is excited to watch the game on the large indoor screen set up by the Rathskeller.

“It’s awesome,” he said. “Instead of running over to my friend’s dorm and his small screen, I can now watch the game the way it’s meant to be watched.”

Management does not know what to expect after last year’s big turnout.

“It’s tough to say; it’s the Packers and Steelers- plus, last year [the game]was hosted here, so we have to see,” Price said.

Senior Jeremy Jeffers is glad that the Rat is bringing back their popular NFL beer specials.

“It’s usually the only reason I come to the Rat; I mean the food is good, but c’mon!” he said.

The beer is just one of the menu specials being offered by the Rat this year. Fans should look out for several other food and drink specials.

The Rathskeller is known to fill up quickly, so make sure to arrive early for Super Bowl XLV because according to management, there are currently no plans to move the party outdoors.
Doors open at 5 p.m. and kickoff is at 6:30 p.m.
