The NFL playoffs are sure to draw fans out to the bar to watch, but when the New York Giants are still hanging around, local interest is even heavier.
So this Sunday at 6:30 p.m. when the Giants face the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship Game with a chance to go to the Super Bowl, it’s a safe bet that plenty of bars all of Rockland will be quite crowded.

This local favorite has been a hangout to some for close to 50 years, and is a popular place for those looking to enjoy the game.
“During all playoff games, including the Giants game, we’re offering a special at the bar,” said Barry Koch, the weekend manager. “Two for Bud Lights and two for Coors Lights bottles, and we’re also doing 20 cent wings. That’s’ only available at the bar. It goes from start of game until the end. So if the two games overlap, that special could be going on for close to seven straight hours.”
Koch said the bar certainly perks up a bit during playoff season, especially when a local team is still involved.
