You can also head down to Bourbon Street to watch the big game. There’s a number of restaurants and pubs to choose from including Boston Pizza, Hooters, Hudsons Canadian Tap House, and more . Boston Pizza Lounge features 13 TV’s, the great food we have come to expect from Boston Pizza, and daily specials. At Hooters if the game you want to watch is not being shown, they will try to find it for you! Hooters is also celebrating their 15th anniversary this month and are featuring great deals on food and $15 jugs of Canadian and Coors Light beer. Hudsons Canadian Tap House is a great place to take in the action if you really want to immerse yourself in the action.
