It’s a wonderful time to be a Philadelphia sports fan. Just months after the Phillies reached the World Series and the Philadelphia Union played in the MLS Cup, the Eagles face the New York Giants in the NFL playoffs this Saturday.
Even though the game doesn’t start until 20:15. on Jan. 21, a Saturday playoff game means plenty of opportunities for Birds fans to celebrate and party as the NFC’s No. 1 team tries to make it all the way to this year’s Super Bowl.
The Laurel at Rittenhouse, Philly’s tallest residential building, will be lit green on Friday before the game. Meanwhile, Dietz and Watson will be outside the Wells Fargo Center Saturday afternoon handing out free “Bird Dogs” on green buns to celebrate the Eagles’ playoff run.
If you’re heading to the Stadium District for the game, be sure to catch a free ride home on the Broad Street Line, courtesy of SEPTA and Unibet Sportsbook. And if you’re looking for a way to keep the party going all weekend, grab a limited-edition “Fly Like An Eagle” green beer from Evil Genius Beer Co. in Fishtown while supplies last.
