In the midst of the autumn season in Central New York, I am excited for many reasons including that Orange on the field and soon on the court (not to mention the soccer field, softball field and other SU facilities). As the season plays out, many focus on the attendance of the crowd and while this is a heated debate to be had at times on social media, for many, the costs are just too much at this time for them. I do not shame them as you have to do what is best for you and your family. Keep in mind, from the product value standpoint, Syracuse football tickets are some of the cheapest throughout the country for their level of play (and some other sport events like soccer can also be free).
If you would like to visit the Dome for a game, we here at Cuse Cheap do have a deal going with the official ticket office to help you save a few dollars on tickets (though it may exclude the Clemson game) if you click the link here.
If saving a few dollars on the tickets still is not enough to help or maybe it is too much to go up to the Dome for other reasons, I thought I would put together a list of places where you can watch and maybe save a few dollars. I hope you go to the Dome if you can but if you decide to go out or if you do go to games and just need a place to watch away games, here are a few places and a fun idea for apparel.
Also note that some have NFL deals as well in case you want to get out for those as well.
If you know of any other options, let me know and I will gladly do a second list later. If you wish to check out their website for more information and locations, click the links on the name of the business.
Lew's Sports Bar & Grill
During all SU games, Lew's will offer 75 cent wings as well as $2.50 pounders and 25 cents off all other drinks.
The Beginning II
The Beginning II is a Buffalo Bills sports bar so if you are a Bills fan, you will enjoy it. That said, during all NFL games this season (and they state on their site they plan to show them all), they will be offering 60 cent wings, $3 Labatts Zubaz cans, $3 bottles of Molson and Miller Lite as well as $7 pitchers.
Jake Hafner's Restaurant & Tavern
Jake Hafner's offers SU and NFL deals during game times. During SU games, you can enjoy 50 cent wings and specials on 22 ounce Coors Light drafts. For NFL games, you can still enjoy 50 cent wings as well as 16 ounce cans of Labatt and Labatt Blue Lights for only $2.50.
Sharkey's Bar & Grill
Sharkey's offers an SU/NFL deal that during games, you can get a half pound of boneless wings with your choice of sauce, served with blue cheese and celery and a flatbread pepperoni pizza for only $10.99. You can also enjoy a pitcher of Bud Light for $8.50 or a bucket of 5 Bud Light cans for only $18. Please note that specials start 15 minutes before game time and run through the games and no substitutions are allowed.
