It's here. The best Thursday of the entire year... it's November 22nd and it's THANKSGIVING FOOTBALL!
And boy does Gridiron & Gravy have a PARTY for you Manchester…
Arrive from 4:45pm to get warmed up with all the pre-game action from the official Sky Sports HD team. We’ll even throw in the free American-style snacks! Then from 5:30pm it's game time...
Firstly we head to Detroit for a big NFC North matchup between the Chicago Bears and the Detroit Lions. Two first year head coaches go head-to-head as ex-Patriots Defensive Coordinator Matt Patricia welcomes ex-Chiefs Offensive Coordinator Matt Nagy for the traditional Thanksgiving game in Detroit. Both teams have had promising starts with room for improvement, and in a primetime slot in a no-love-lost division, this should make for one compelling game of football!
Then, it's over to the AT&T Stadium as the Washington Redskins head to Dallas for a tasty NFC East match-up. Since 1966 the Cowboys have missed only two Thanksgiving games and “welcome” the Redskins in a game which is traditionally a hard-hitting affair. Who will take the spoils? Both teams have showed potential so far this season and will be looking to lay down a statement, in game which will have the whole of America watching!
Finally we could be saving the best until last, as the NFC South’s Atlanta Falcons and New Orleans Saints go all out in the Superdome. The Saints have made a strong start to the season while the Falcons have room for improvement, but both sides have the capability to high-score in big matches and this is most certainly that!
It's the biggest day of American Football in the regular season, but that's not all we have to offer...OH NO!
Apart from being surrounded by multiple HD big screens with full volume and unparalleled viewing access across the venue, we also have a host of goodies to ensure that there is only one place to be this Thanksgiving:
Upon arrival you'll be greeted with a FREE DRINK! On top of that, you’ll also receive a special wristband that unlocks exclusive drinks offers behind the bar, including PINTS, BOTTLES, SPIRITS AND WINE FOR JUST £3.40 ALL NIGHT! Plus, 20p of every discounted drink that you buy will go to our chosen good cause of the evening - more details on that coming soon...
Excited yet? You should be...and it doesn't stop there: the kitchen will be serving an amazing selection of classic American-style food, including Turkey sandwiches, delicious wings, hot dogs, burgers, sharing platters and much much more - click here and take a look at the full menu that we have on offer!
