So that glorious day has come around again…GAME DAY. And you are wondering where you can find some deals on good grub or adult beverages if you don’t have tickets to TIAA Bank Field.
Or, even worse, it’s an away game and you need a good spot to watch it with your pals!
The good news is, whether you’re going to the game or just looking for a place to party, Jax has plenty of great options!
Naughty ales for noble souls, ey? That’s what Wicked Barley preaches! They have some neat deals on game day…Happy hour pricing on beers on tap, 20 wings for $20, and (Drum roll, please) a teal house pretzel! Yea, they legitimately color the dough TEAL. (4100 Baymeadows Rd, Jacksonville, FL)
One of the best bars to watch sporting events, Hoptinger in Jax Beach has plenty of TVs so that you don’t miss a minute of the game. And on game days, they offer certain $3 beers and bar snacks from noon to 9 p.m! If the Jags are out of town, this is definitely a go-to spot. (333 1st St N, Jacksonville Beach, FL)
Known for their special drinks on game day, Dos Gatos really helps you feel the teal with their $4 bomb shots! (Because the Jags where teal…you know…). AND, they give away shots for every Jags touchdown during away games! One of the best places to watch away games, give Dos Gatos a try. (123 E. Forsyth St, Jacksonville, FL)
Talk about hella deals. On game days, Brix hooks it up with a Two Titmice vodka mixed with any flavor Red Bull for only $6, $3 Miller Lite drafts, and 5 for $20 Whiteclaws! PLUS they offer complimentary breakfast biscuits until 1pm on Sundays, so you can keep munching on some food to tame that buzz. (300 2nd St N, Jacksonville Beach, FL)
The Palace Saloon
One of the oldest bars in Florida, The Palace Saloon certainly has some charm. Sure, it would be a bit of a journey to Fernandina Beach, but if you’re out that way, take advantage of their $2 Miller Lite drafts and $9 bottomless mimosas on game days! (117 Centre St, Fernandina Beach, FL)
Talk about deals on deals on deals. Mellow Mushroom really gives out the goods on game days…Jaguar juice for $5, Truly Spiked & Sparkling beers for $3, and Intuition’s Easy on the Eyes for $3. PLUS, they have amazing pizza, so go get a bang for your buck! (5 Locations)
Depending on if the game is in Jacksonville or away, you can find special discounts on food & drinks! Word on the street is that Salt Life has a popular offer of ½ off margaritas and $8 oysters per dozen. Salt Life is crazy popular so definitely get in there and get a deal! (1018 3rd St N, Jacksonville Beach, FL)
Luigi’s Touchdown Grill
Okay, so the big call out for Luigi’s is that they are normally only open Monday through Friday until 2:30 pm. Since it’s more of a limited breakfast place, it’s a HUGE deal that they open up for home game days with a limited menu! If you’re already downtown for the game, peep Luigi’s for some good grub. (1803 E Duval St, Jacksonville, FL)
Surfer the Bar
Available any day that there is a football game, Surfer has got all the swag to help you party on a budget. $15 buckets (5 beers) of Miller Lite or Bud Light, $20 buckets of Corona, or $25 for 5 mixed beers or shots…You already know you’re going to need an Uber back. (200 1st St N, Jacksonville Beach, FL)
I wouldn’t call this a gameday deal, but it’s definitely still clutch. On Sundays, you can get $3 bombs and $2 PBRs! Let me paint the picture for you…The Jags are traveling on this particular Sunday, you go to Shim Sham and snag up these deals, and then you and your friends go play at the beach, that’s only steps away. Boom, I’ve planned your Sunday for you. (333 1st N St, Jacksonville Beach, FL)
Hurricane Grill & Wings
Who wants buckets of beer?! Me too. Come to Hurricane Grill & Wings for $9.99 Miller or Coors Lite buckets! They also have daily specials, so you may be able to sneakily snag 2 deals at once, depending on the game day! (4 Jacksonville locations)
Miller’s Ale House
If you are looking for the full meal and not just some bubbly, Miller’s is the SPOT for a deal when the Jags are playing. You can get a cheeseburger, fries, and a pint of Miller Lite, ALL for $10.95! So grab the squad and your wallets! (5 Jacksonville locations)
Alright, take your time soaking in all of Pusser’s offers at the bar! The food specials include $6 wings, beef sliders, chicken parmesan sliders, or buffalo shrimp. The drink specials include $3 Budlight or Yuengling, $4 Kona Big Wave, and $4 select cocktails. That is A LOT of good stuff, for my folks out in Ponte Vedra! (816 Highway A1A N, Ponte Vedra Beach, FL)
Intuition Ale Works
Intuition is an AWESOME game day spot since they are in the “wet zone” of the stadium, meaning you can walk around with open containers. They offer 60-ounce pitchers and $4 cans. Not to mention, you can take a draft or can to-go for your stadium stroll. (929 E Bay St, Jacksonville, FL)
If you aren’t stoked yet for at-home or away games, now is the time to check out some of these places and bring up that hype (don’t forget to tag #FrayLife #JaxFray in your social posts)! DUVALLL.
