WILMINGTON — Local residents have a case of Super Bowl fever — but there are plenty of places to get your remedy.

Whether it’s at a traditional sports-gathering spot place like Buffalo Wild Wings or at a special public watch party, you’ll be certain to find “Who Dey?!” spirit.

The Elks Club will be hosting another party much like their previous playoff parties for the Bengals. General Manager Randall Davis told the News Journal they installed three new TVs for people to view the game. They’re also giving attendees the option to enjoy an all-you-can-eat appetizer buffet or to enjoy their special “Who Dey” menu.

“It’s a six-item menu specialized to Bengals’ players names and such,” said Davis.

The doors will open for anyone to come at 4:30 p.m. on Sunday with the watch party.

“The community is always welcomed here and we’re an awesome place for people to enjoy sporting events,” said Davis.

Wilmington’s Buffalo Wild Wings (“B-Dubs”), always a popular spot for football, will be dedicated to the Bengals and cheering them on.

“Every one of our 75 TVs will be focused on the Super Bowl,” said Rick Smalls, marketing director for Wilmington’s Buffalo Wild Wings.

There will also be perks to those getting food from B-Dubs. They’ll be giving out “Who Dey” spirit towels (while supplies last) for those who eat in the restaurant. Those who pick up carry-out orders by 4 p.m. will receive a 10% discount. Also, if the game should go into overtime, people eating at the restaurant will receive a coupon for free wings.

“I’m going to be in house to watch the game,” said Smalls. “I might be put to work and shake some wings.”

The Fraternal Order of Eagles is also inviting locals to watch the big game at their club on East Sugartree Street. Much like B-Dubs, all their TVs will have the game on.

The General Denver will be serving some special drinks on Sunday — The Griddy and Money Mac, each priced at $10.

TinCap will be open from 5-10 p.m. on Sunday, serving pizza, pints and pitchers. They’ll also be serving Kenny Anderson’s Dey Drinkin Lager beer on tap.

“The Bengals are going to win,” said owner Jason Vaughan. “It’s going to be exciting times.”

At Wilmington’s Murphy Theatre, they’ll be hosting a showing on their big screen for members only Sunday starting at 5:30 p.m. They ask that Murphy members RSVP [email protected], or call 937-382-3643.

They also ask attendees to bring non-perishable food items to bring as part of their Two-Ton Foodraising Campaign for local food pantries. Food and drinks will be served, and the Murphy will be displaying their new hot dog and bun warmer combo.

Members attending are allowed to bring a friend.
