In between the sporting plays, the restaurant offers patrons the use of a free game console “Buzztime Playmaker Players Plus” where players within the restaurant can play each other in trivia questions and poker (monitors display your name and game played). Those that want to play alone can choose from other games as well. And if there is a particular sporting event that you’d like to watch (like a UFC bout), just ask!
The restaurant is open until 1:00am on weekends, and opens at 9:00am on Sunday morning for all you NFL football fans. Happy Buffalo winging!
