Why Tailgate At The Game When You Can Tailgate At The Bar?
November 4 / Gregg Sussman / SportsGrid
As we head into the winter months, the NFL season is halfway over. It's deeply disappointing that we are halfway to no longer being able to wonder if the Browns will win a game, or if the Patriots will lose a game or what week the Jaguars will actually fire Gus Bradley in. As the season winds down, it's important that we make sure we get our tailgating in. Just not at the actual games. It's getting way too cold for that.
Why do we go to tailgate before a game? For the food? The camaraderie? The drinking games? Wouldn't it be nice if we can just do that in the warmth of a restaurant, where you don't have to suffer through all the silly weather conditions? How about on a gorgeous rooftop where they will never ever run out of beer or forget to bring propane to fire up the grill? Thankfully, this is now possible.
Every Sunday at Rock & Reilly's on 35th Street in New York, the bar holds what is essentially a live tailgate. With very cool food, including dishes like tofu tacos, and even corn hole, Rock & Reilly's makes you never want to go to the game at all. In fact, it's a live tailgate with 40 freaking TVs on. The bar is also the future home of the FNTSY Sports Network's New York Studios, so those tailgating for the games will be able to see live TV and radio being filmed. You will legitimately never want to go to the game again, because you'll be warm and have a better view of the field.
A better view of every field, in every game.
Earlier today, two of the restaurant's owners, Arthur Backal and FNTSY Sports Network CEO Louis M. Maione, along with Rock & Reilly chef Chai Trivedi, stopped by "Good Day New York" to talk about the new center of New York indoor tailgating.
