Saints Host Falcons Week 2020

Posted by | November 16, 2020 .

The annual Saints host Falcons week is upon us once again, this time for the incredibly strange year of 2020. This divisional showdown will be the 24th all-time meeting between quarterbacks Drew Brees and Matt Ryan, extending their NFL record for most meetings between two quarterbacks. Although considered one of the NFL’s fiercest rivalries, this season will mark the first time since 2014 that one of the meetings between the Saints and Falcons isn’t currently scheduled for prime time. What better way to spend a weekend in New Orleans. Reserve a nice hotel room, get your Saints gameday apparel ready and be ready to have a great time despite a few changes due to covid-19

If you are planning on going to the game, make sure you get authentic saints tickets and be careful of the counterfeit ones. With the ticket system being 100% digital it is very easy for you to think you have a ticket to the game when you may just have a photoshopped screenshot.
The Big Easy is a great place to be for an NFL football game, especially the Saints. The entire city dresses in Black and Gold and you hear the Saints Anthem on every street corner.

If you aren’t going to the game, don’t worry- there’s plenty of bars in the surrounding area for you to continue the party!

Walk-Ons Bistreaux & Bar, conveniently located a few blocks from the Superdome, is one of the most popular places locals and tourists go to watch sports games. With over 100 flat-screen TVs, great food and drinks, and a fun sports-themed atmosphere, it’s no surprise they were voted “No. 1 Sports Bar in America” by ESPN. It also helps that our beloved quarterback Drew Brees is co-owner of the company.

The Rusty Nail might be a little hard to find as it is located almost directly under the I-10 overpass, but don’t let that steer you away from the popular Warehouse District bar. On game days, they bring in bleachers for regular season games and play music during commercials to give their patrons the best game-day experience.

What better way to watch a football game in New Orleans than by going to the restaurant/bar of New Orleans legend Archie Manning? Manning’s, located in the Central Business District, known to be a “sports lovers paradise” with sports memorabilia from the Manning family, two 13-foot big screens, over 30 flat screen TVs, a spacious outdoor patio, and a reclining section called the “End Zone.” The food menu features comfort food from Archie’s home state of Mississippi with unique Creole twists dedicated to the time he was in New Orleans. No matter who you are cheering for, this is the place to “Eat, Drink, and Cheer!”

A little off the beaten path of the downtown buzz, Bayou Beer Garden is a prime spot for gameday. Their extensive beer selection, a spacious back patio, big screen TVs, great food, and beer bucket specials are what keeps the locals flocking to this cozy bar. Also, two words: DISCO. FRIES. Trust us, just get em! Get out there early to claim your spot.

While Barcadia is a fun spot to hang out and watch the games, the real fun begins after the games when the fans that attended the game flock over to continue the party. There are 44 taps for draft beer and over 80 bottled beers, a unique food menu and games such as Jenga, Air Hockey, Pac-Man, Skee-Ball, and many more. Win or lose, New Orleans fans know how to party and Barcadia is the perfect sports bar to do so. Plus you never know, a few players might show up after to party with the city!
