Two buddies and I decided to meet up at a bar and watch the Cleveland Browns-Pittsburgh Steelers game, so I began surfing the web for places with cheap beers and more importantly, a wing special. Willie McBrides, an Irish pub in Hoboken, caught my eye. Not only did they have 18 HD TVs, but they were offering $2 Beers all day and a $5 wing special – sold!
We settled into our bar seats and ordered a round of beers and a round of wing specials, which is 8 wings for $5, served with carrots or celery sticks, bleu cheese or ranch dressing with choice of buffalo sauce (mild, medium, spicy), teriyaki sauce or BBQ sauce. I went with medium. The wings were steaming hot when the bartender brought them out, so I had to let them cool for 10 minutes. They were crunchy, tasty, and meaty. Can’t complain for $5. Between the three of us, we had three orders of wings and 15 beers. Our bill came out to $45. It totally made up for the pitiful performance by the Browns, who lost 41-9.
If you’re ever in Hoboken and want to partake in Sunday Funday with a budget, I recommend checking out Willie McBrides.
