Best bars to watch Big Blue
Despite being named the “New York” Giants, the G-men call New Jersey home. They play and practice at MetLife Stadium, a monolithic sports complex located in the Meadowlands of Bergen County, NJ. Not everyone can score tickets to watch NJ’s favorite football franchise (let’s pretend the Jets don’t exist for a minute). Check out our list of the best places to watch the Giants in Bergen County, NJ.
Redd’s Restaurant, Bar & Banquets: Governor Christie has called Redd’s “the Times Square of New Jersey.” On football Sunday, that may be true. Redd’s is located down the block from MetLife. They offer a shuttle service to and from the stadium for those lucky enough to have tickets to the big game. Redd’s hosts an outdoor football tailgate in the parking lot five hours before kickoff.
