On Wednesday we told you where you should watch the Super Bowl if you happen to be a 49ers fan in New York City. Today, we’ve found a couple of great spots to watch the game if you bleed purple! This one’s for the Baltimore Ravens fans looking for fellow die hards to enjoy Super Bowl Sunday with:
Head up to 3rd and 39th to find this fantastic sports bar which will be crammed with Baltimore Raven’s fans on Super Bowl Sunday. Just make sure you get there early because every Raven fan in the city will be trying to get in.
For some time now, we at Gray Line New York have been trying to figure out why there is no twitter chat about New York City. We’ve been wondering why there isn’t a place dedicated to thoughtful, educational and engaging conversation about the greatest city in the world. We believe that this kind of open discussion on twitter is essential to the New York City community, to travelers anticipating a trip to our great town, and to NYC itself.
Up until now, there has been no hashtag chat devoted to the incredible world of New York City travel, but that is changing. We have decided to take it upon ourselves to start this conversation and a proud to announce that starting next week (1/31), every Thursday at 3:30 Gray Line New York will be hosting #GLNYchat; a hashtag chat on twitter dedicated to all aspects of the New York City travel world.
The chat will be hosted every Thursday on Twitter beginning at 3:30, ending at 4:30 p.m. (starting 1/31)
Each week’s chat will focus on one central, timely theme, within the overall category of NYC travel. (think “love in NYC,” around Valentine’s Day)
The first chat will focus on “Shows in NYC” since it will take place during Broadway Week and Off Broadway Week
We will tweet 6 opinion-based questions during the chat, one every 10 minutes.
Once the first question is asked, we (any and everyone) can all discuss our answers, share our thoughts and chat
After 10 minutes of chatting, we move onto the next question.
Everyone is encouraged to use the hashtag #GLNYchat to connect with everyone else in the conversation
Once we get through all 6 questions, we open up discussion on what we all want next week’s topic to be. This way the community dictates what we talk about.
That last bullet point is key, because this chat is for you, traveler coming to NYC next summer, and you, NYC resident, and you, cousin of the college roommate of the guy who went to New York that one time. Despite what the name may imply, this isn’t going to be about Gray Line New York. #GLNYchat is going to be for and about the people who make New York City the greatest city in the world.
So next Thursday at 3:30, join us on twitter by following the hashtag #GLNYchat, and let’s see if we can make this into something great.
The Super Bowl matchup is finally set and the first Sunday in February will see the San Francisco 49ers face off against the Baltimore Ravens. While this year’s Super Bowl doesn’t feature any New York teams, you’re still probably going to want to watch the big game, so let us help you out. Here is a list of great spots in NYC where you can watch the biggest game in all of sport, if you root for the :
Finnerty’s in the East Village will surely be showing the game. After all, it is NYC’s unofficial 49ers bar. So put on your favorite Smith jersey (I’m partial to Aldon) and meet your friends from San Francisco on 2md Avenue and 13th Street
Hibernia isn’t a Niners bar, but you certainly won’t find any Ravens fans here on Sunday. As the Unofficial Steelers bar of NYC, this crown may be rooting for San Francisco even harder than the group at Finnerty’s.
UPDATE: Unfortunately we are going to have to cancel this year’s Valentine’s Day Cruise. If you have already purchased your tickets you will be issued a full refund. We are so sorry for the inconvenience and hope that you end up having a great Valentine’s Day.

Far too often, Off Broadway shows are lost in the shuffle. People come far and wide to New York City to see the bursting lights of Broadway, but strangely look down upon those shows with the Off-Broadway label. Those poor souls, they don’t know what they’re missing.
You can bring the whole family to see The Berenstain Bears in Family Matters, the Musical, or maybe take in the awesome visual display that is Blue Man Group. Avenue Q might be the funniest show in all of New York City, and that includes those Broadway hits. Just because a show is considered Off-Broadway, it doesn’t mean that it is inferior in quality.
What’s the best part about Off Broadway shows in NYC, you ask? It’s that beginning next week (1/28), you can see 37 different Off Broadway for half price as part of Off Broadway Week! For more information on this incredible buy-one, get-one deal, check out NYC & Company’s official Off Broadway Week website where you can purchase all of your tickets.
Off Broadway Week begins on January 28 and runs through February 10. Tickets are on sale for show now, so get them before it’s too late!
