Shanghai, are you ready for some (American) football?
Kickoff for the Super Bowl LII (pronounced 'lǐ') between the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles is at 7.30am China time on Monday, February 5. We've rounded up a list of where to enjoy Super Bowl Monday around town.
Cages is throwing a tailgate party for Super Bowl Monday. Each RMB160 ticket includes a breakfast buffet (southern country style) and a can of Brewdog Punk IPA. They'll also be offering specials on pints and a package deal on kegs. Doors will open at 6am, while the breakfast buffet starts at 8am and finishes after Justin Timberlake's (presumably) wardrobe malfunction-less halftime show. If you'd rather pass on the commercials — we've already seen the Diet Coke one, and we don't blame you — they've got games and other fun activities planned for the breaks. Seat and table choices are first come, first serve.
