Basketball Game Day Meal Ideas
At Ed’s Tavern, there’s always excitement and a warm atmosphere that permeates within. And while some might be feeling the excitement about October being Halloween season, there are others who are gearing up for a different type of season, one which also features a circular orange object. That’s right; basketball season is upon us! But before the tip-off and rabid enthusiasm about game day begin, you’ll want to get some snacks for the occasion. We conducted a survey among our patrons to see what they enjoy best, and we’re here to present these findings to you.
French Fries – No matter what the occasion might be–whether it’s just a burger with friends or a side order to watch the opening tip-off, fries are universally accepted as one of the best dishes for game day. You’ll be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn’t enjoy them.
Wings – One of the most popular items at any watering hole, wings have long been one of the times most synonymous with gamely. Whether they’re fried or glazed in Buffalo sauce, they’re the perfect addition to any contest.
Sandwiches – Grinders, subs, hogs, whatever you might call them, you can never go wrong with meats and veggies. If you’ve ever wondered why so many people insist that sliced bread is the greatest invention of all time, look no further than the sandwich to see why.
Pizza – Perhaps one of the most popular items for not just game day but every day, pizza comes prepared in a variety of ways with an endless amount of customization in the way of toppings. Thick crust or thin? The choice is yours! And don’t worry; whether or not you decide to put pineapple on your pizza, you’ll get no judgment from us.
Tacos – Similar to pizza, tacos are prepared in a variety of ways and can contain ingredients such as beef, tofu, chicken, or even fish. While the taco is traditionally consumed on Tuesdays, it can be a great addition to any game day event, no matter what day the game happens to fall upon. As a matter of fact, you can start your own tradition of taco tip-off Tuesday!
