If there are three things that all Australians love with every fibre of their beings, it’s live sport, ‘big’ things, and American food. So, with the 2018 Super Bowl looming, this is the perfect time to brush up on your American sporting facts.
Thanks to a nifty time difference, though, drinking halls across Brisbane will be screening the live broadcast with a red, white and blue breakfast on Monday morning. Can you imagine a better way to kick-start your week than with a boozy breakfast bloodbath? I can’t!
So rally some chums and head down to any one of these choice joints to kick off your week with some high-octane faux patriotism. Because nothing stops us from getting into the rowdy, sport-fuelled spirit…even if that requires cheering for a team you don’t know in a game you don’t understand. Go Patriots! Go Eagles! Go anyone!
